Item Description

Our Stock # 18.9105

This is an antique combination games table. A Middle Eastern, inlaid olivewood and exotic wood metamorphic chess and backgammon table, dating to the late Victorian period, circa 1900.

Strikingly ornate, with an exceptional metamorphic form to host a multiple of favourite games

  • Displays a desirable aged patina, slight loss to the top commensurate with age
  • Olivewood stocks profusely accentuated with bone and wooden inlay
  • Rich caramel hues with contrasting saffron and amber colouring
  • Fascinating upper, with rotating motion and dual folding action
  • Upon rotation, access is granted to a generous card and counter storage box
  • Initial fold reveals a crushed velvet card table in a delightful emerald green
  • Half of the card baize folds upon itself, revealing the exquisite chess table
  • One final folding action opens out fully to show the backgammon board
  • Table edge hosts a pair of sliding compartments, with an inset tumbler holder at opposite corners
  • Deep apron hosts an arcaded edge with a quintet of drop finials to the front and rear
  • Twin shaped legs to each end, standing upon pairs of arched feet
  • United across the middle with an ornate stretcher rail, offering a final flourish

This is a truly beguiling antique combination games table, graced with the fascination of its inclusion of chess, backgammon and cards within one exceptional form. Solid joints and construction, delivered ready for the home or institution.
