Baker Furniture backgammon table with leather top vintage 1940s. It has a leather top that comes off. Felt is on the interior side of the top/cover. One drawer on each side opens. It has never been refinished. Was a wedding gift for my parents wedding in 1946. The playing board is good. The wood table is in good condition and two of the four corners have a chip at the corner but the chip does not affect the corner (IE corner is still intact). Material is unknown, possibly cherry wood. No chips or blemishes in the playing board. Height 27.25", Width 21", Length 38"
Never exhibited and I've never tried to sell it. It was a gift for my parents wedding in 1946. I always liked it so my mother gave to me when she died.
