New Board

One of my hobbies is collecting chess boards. Every time we go somewhere interesting, I try to buy a board with some local flare. We were in Istanbul this weekend, and I bought a beautiful board there. It's decorated with inlaid wood and mother-of-pearl, and has a backgammon board on the inside. Because the chess pieces at the shop weren't interesting, I only bought the board, but it did come with backgammon chits and some dice. It's about 18" (~46cm) square and was very reasonably priced, all things considered. Here are some pictures:
