Very large Backgammon set

Go Back to Stock Listings

1759/18: A very large early/mid 19th century (maybe earlier?) BACKGAMMON BOARD complete with its full set of large ivory and coromandel-wood pieces. The board itself is of ebony inlaid with ivory and ebony chess to the outside with natural and green-stained inlaid backgammon to the inside. The iron hinges and an interesting brass catch to lock the set indicates that this might be European (German or Low Countries?) and perhaps 18th or even 17th century? When closed: 23 x 14.5 x 5ins (58 x 37 x 12,5cms). Also comes with large yew-wood box for the pieces.
