In fact, it may become a historical, prized object if it’s that old since such things may no longer be made. If you have visited any friend’s ancestral house and seen a beautiful, customized chess set from 18th century and came to know that his or her great-great-grandfather made this for a specific purpose, it immediately assigns historical currency to the object. Moreover, being customized, it is a curio shop material in itself. But, if you are clever enough, and love playing chess, you can actually customize your own chess board at little cost.

For example, if you are a good designer yourself, you can tweak the designs of each chess pieces. Moreover, if you can draw, it is even better.
