Description

Large Classical Framed Chessboard.

Offered here is a Large Classical Framed Chessboard with a black and gold printed leather playing field. This chessboard was designed to accommodate the full Club-size Staunton chessmen as well as the large figural chess sets, such as those by Anri.  The chessboard measures 26″ over-all with a playing field having 2-3/4″ printed leather playing squares mounted on a cloth-covered wood backing and enclosed by a frame with traditional wood molding.

The chessboard was likely produced in the 1950s. The chessboard is in very good condition with some minor scuffing due to usage and long-term shelf storage. There is a tear in the cloth backing as can be seen from the photo in the gallery. The chessboard will properly display the larger Anri wooden chessmen such as the Montsalvat, Far West and Versailles with having base diameters around 2-0″ to 2-3/8″.
