About

A beautifully shaped Syrian games table inlaid with ebony, various species of exotic woods and mother-of-pearl in geometric patterns. Rectangular top opens up into a square top with a green velvet surface. The velvet top is hinged and opens to reveal a chess board and backgammon board. The gently curved cabriole legs are inlaid with ebony and mother-of-pearl. The stretchers meet beneath the table and support a rectangular inlaid center piece.
