Late 19th century Fruit wood Giant and foldable board folding Paris with games of the time
Wooden chess set French Regency style, very old, from late 19th century or early 20th century. It is a very rare chess, hard to find, due to the artistic value of the horses, which are, without a doubt, the most outstanding pieces of the set, due to its beauty and work because each figure is unique. The work on all the pieces, Kings, Queens and bishops is exquisite and the towers reveal the passage of time for their slender forms of the 19th century. They are made of very hard fruit wood due to their drying, hence the curvature of some piece such as the black king and a pawn with a higher base, undeniable proof of the passing of time of this noble material.
The board of the Paris brand is from the beginning of 19th century, it has several games and quality interior protective felt to play Backgammon or dice. It includes the wooden pieces of checkers and Backgammon. Very old pieces of ebony and boxwood with precious patina.
Dimensions: Board: 60 x 50 x 10 cm approximately; the king is 91 mm
