Vintage French Polished Iron Game Table Chess Board Top circa 1900

List Price $2,181

This unique vintage French polished steel table base circa 1900 has an amazing amount of detail to its three legs. At some point the old table top was removed and this vintage French chess board game table top was set in its place to create a fantastic game table. The chalky colour chess board game table top is stenciled on black leather stretched across a wooden platform and secured with polished nail heads that complement the polished steel base. Please enlarge the photographs to see the elaborate pattern of the design that extends from end to end on each leg. The top of each of the three legs has a scroll end with an oval chain link suspended from the curve while the base of each leg has a dramatic scroll that is larger in scale and has an outside flourish to provide stability to the leg. All three legs have a rope twist design on each side that gives powerful definition to the profile. As the three legs meet in the centre each leg has a raised pattern of leafy foliage that conceal the fastener securing the three legs. This table also has a curious addition that no one has an answer for. One of the legs has a horizontal circular hollow cylinder welded to it that must have been used to hold the table in place. So the mystery remains and adds to the allure of this handsome French side table.
