An exceptional quality late 19th century mirror chess board, with oak surround and brass corner mounts.
The chessboard has been painted onto the reverse of the mirrored glass in the verre eglomise method, the edge of which is decorated with a cut glass bevelled edge.
The period mirror glass has started to show signs of age in places, which to me enhances its charm.
In excellent condition and I suspect never used. Perhaps it was a presentation gift to someone.
It looks stunning on a wall.
Overall size: 15.5" square 39.5cm
