Chess Boxes

MENU

Lardy Box

Lardy box from the 1930s. Excellently made Lardy slide top box from the 1930s. Finely joined wall, red varnish. Contains a well-made, weighted Lardy chess set.

Slidetop Box

Standard slidetop box, end 19th C - but with a difference - the slide cover moves sideways, no longitudinal! Swallowtail jointures, which is why the box is still around.

Miniature Box

Tiny box, measuring 65 x 47 x 33 mm! One single swallowtail joint - still around from the 19th century. Contains a Chinese pocket set, so probably made in China.

Sarcophagus Box

19th century British box, aptly named sarcophagus - probably because it ressembles stone sarcophaguses in churches.

Tobacco Box

Contains a St. George set, a light former tobacco box.
