Wooden inlaid chess table

This amazingly delicate wooden inlaid chess table was made by my great-grandfather Charlie. Inside is a mechanism that once played music.

The hinges are currently rusted, and I'm not sure if they can be fixed but we should try. This special tiny table is at my mother's house.


  1. Do you know if he made many more of these? I picked up one at an estate sale that is almost identical, but the side pattern is different. Mine is is done in black and has a fleur-de-lis look to it.

  2. I don't know if he made anymore, but he lived in Sydney, Australia

  3. i have the same one in perfect condition i got it at an auction for 10 bucks what is it worth?

  4. I don't know what its worth, sorry, let me know if you find out!
