Artwork Description

I was inspired to create this Lord of The Ring Chess Table after purchasing a number of pewter pieces sculpted, signed and dated by Bob Marcus who worked for Gallo Pewter in the mid 1980's. Over the three years that I collected the specific pieces o make up the chess pieces, I created a stained glass game board using black and white glass symbolic good versus evil. Some years later after returning home to Ireland my brother had salvaged a beautiful set of richly carved Victorian table legs badly in need of restoration. I returned to North Carolina with table legs in hand and went about restoring them to its former glory. A rich dark oak wood dated to the 1880's. The table top I created to match the oak leave foliage in the legs. In addition I added two carved shields on opposite sides of the table depicting the opposing forces.
This is a very unique and a one of a kind table. 15 years in the making which I will never do again.
