Gift Ideas - Vintage Marble & Bakelite Checker Game Set 

Who would not want to display and play with this true vintage checker game set? We came across this marble checker / chess board and knew we had to match it with some authentic Bakelite checkers. It was a search, but we found them! The board is black and off-white marble with some light crazing here and there, but overall in great condition. For the actual checker game, you only need 24 pieces, but we are including 30 pieces. In their original box, we offer a set of red and black Bakelite and Catalan game pieces. Totaling 30, they could be used for backgammon or checkers. In very good condition, they are thicker than poker chips; 1/4" and 1 1/8" in diameter. Cherry red Catalan pieces are swirled red with gold ; black pieces are solid black Bakelite. All have mild dulling from minor surface scratches seen under magnification. Original box is cardboard, 6 1/2" by 4 1/4"; bottom is good condition, top is poor; but it does work to contain and protect the pieces- with a rubber band. Circa 1940's 1950's. This would make a beautiful addition to a game room or displayed on a shelf or coffee table. The piece is in good condition given its age, please be sure to view all pictures. Please note, any random rays of lights or shadows are due to our photography, not part of the finish. A smashing uncommon good and home decor statement or gift. Please read below regarding shipping of this item.
