Titanic Chessboard

The chessboard was crafted by William Parker, a carpenter aboard the Minia, one of the ships that was sent out to recover bodies from the doomed Titanic, which went down after striking an iceberg in April 1912. Parker retrieved wooden debris as well as victims, and he used the wood to fashion several pieces, including the 18 inch by 18 inch mahogany, oak and pine chessboard.
