I don't recall how I ended up with this chess stand but it has been with me for at least the last twenty years or so.
I remember this stand being in my grandparent's house (Clyde and Ruth Webb) either in the living room or perhaps her bedroom. I don't ever recall seeing a chess set or other similar type game on it. There may have been a plant on it at one time but I can't be sure and of the few pictures I have of the inside of my grandparent's house, the stand doesn't make an appearance. I have no idea how old it is or where it came from, but I have always liked it.
My wife has a lot of board games and included among them was a glass chess set. It took a long time but I managed to put the two together. And now I have a major sense of accomplishment.
