    Ole aluminum chess board , hand made from the 1800's as best I can tell , most likely crafted in Europe , Spain or Italy but not really sure !
    Piece is close to one foot long and wide !
    I really believe it to be a one off and not made for sale but personal use of the maker ! Its numbered 1 thru 8 up the sides & A thru H on the bottom , silver & copper color's in the flowers & feathers which make up the squares of the chess board ! Any one that knows anything about this board feel free to join in !
