Jon's main chess page
This lightweight papier mache tilt top table comes from the 19th century. It was a useful yet decorative item, folding up to sit in the corner until needed. It is designed with inlaid mother of pearl on the game board. The table measures 40 1/2 in high when tilted up, 27 1/4 in when down.
