Navy Officer’s Custom Chess Set

Ref: 9068

SOLD

A pretty neat piece of custom craftsmanship for use on board a WWII Navy ship, acquired directly from a family who had someone serving on board a warship during WWII. This custom piece utlizes a basic folding cardboard chess board, inlaid into wood and then overlaid with a piece of aircraft-grade plexiglas with holes drilled into each square. The board has two holes to allow it to be screwed directly to a table so it cannot move. The carved wooden playing pieces are inset with steel pins. Playing with this board would prevent the pieces from shifting or falling over when the ship is in rough seas. 

Dimensions: 17"x17"
