Stylish antique backgammon/chess games board/box in a deep chocolate brown, with nice shiny patina. Counters probably original to the set, which is a nice touch. Counters make that appealing ‘clackerty-clack’ noise during play.

The doubling up cube was invented in the 20’s, so you won’t find original examples with an antique board. However, I can source a range of contemporary doubling up cubes on request- please ask.
