Italian Pietra Dura Marble Chess Table Regency Hardwood Base Staunton Chess Set

$6,294.77

About

We are delighted to offer for sale this absolutely exquisite antique Pietra Dura Italian Marble chess table with Regency Mahogany circa 1815 base and antique Staunton box wood chess set This is the most exceptional chess table I have ever seen, the top is circa 1860-1800, Italian Pietra Dura marble which is the equivalent to marquetry inlay but with marble. It is beautifully crafted and looks expensive and important in any setting. The base is original Regency, it’s a miniature version of a well know turned pedestal base for a dining table. I think it was a rare exhibition sample used to show at antique fairs the quality of the craftsman work, they made smaller pieces as they were easier to transport, they are very very rare and highly collectable. Finally we have an original Staunton boxwood chess set, if you know anything about chess then I won’t need to say anything else! In terms of the condition the chess set has various chips due to genuine age and honest use, the table itself is in very good order for the period Dimensions Height:- 55cm Width:- 60cm Depth:- 60cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point This item is available for collection from our Pulborough warehouses Condition Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description pertaining to the condition. Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of creasing and wear, we recommend annual waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
