Iraq  (Asia)

Iraq. This board was brought from Iraq to the Netherlands by my father in law long ago. He worked there a long time for his company and got it from his Iraqi friends. It is a real old board, according to my father in law around 1900, but it may be a bit younger I think. But it has real mother of Pearl inlaid. Later boards, say after 1950, mostly have plastic looking like real mother of Pearl inlaid.
