Description

Reproduction Antique Rosewood and Holly Chessboard.

This offering features a Reproduction Antique Rosewood and Holly Chessboard. The recessed chess board squares are Holly and Rosewood with a Mahogany back and a 7/8″ thick solid Mahogany frame. The chessboard measures 23″ square. The square size is 2-1/2″. This chessboard was produced to accompany the Club-Size 1849 Nathaniel Cooke reproduction chessmen offered elsewhere on this site. The chess board is an exact reproduction of the chessboards produced in the 1800s and early 1900s. The chessboard was designed by Frank Camaratta and will accommodate chessmen with a base diameter of between 1-7/8″ and 2-0″. The chessboard was made in 2014 and is new.

This English-made framed playing field style chessboard was in common use until World War II. After the War, much more economical wooden chess boards started appearing from other European countries such as Spain, Poland and Germany. Chessboards bearing the Jaques of London and British Chess Company stamping were all most likely produced by the same factory in the UK.
