An antique, late-19th to early-20th-century Syrian card table set with four matching chairs. Intricate Syrian marquetry or parquetry light wood, dark wood, and mother of pearl geometric inlay throughout in the traditional Moorish design. The top of the table folds out with the center piece a chess or checkers game board on one side, a green baize felt lining for cards on the other side, and a hidden compartment for game pieces. The table measures 23.5" x 23.5" by 28" high closed, and 33" x 33" x 28" high open. The chairs are 24.25" wide by 23" deep by 34.25" high, with a seat height of 18.25". 50ʺW × 50ʺD × 35ʺH total, chairs pushed in. The bottom part of the table has damage to the veneer and is set on eyelet screws. Several of the spindles from the chairs are missing, with one extra in the game piece compartment. Throughout, there are minor losses to the veneer, but none more serious than shown (due to the limits of photos allowed, please write to request more if you would like to see more, or zoom in as much as possible on the more distant photos). One of the chairs has a bit of mother of pearl inlay, where the other three have wood.
