ANTIQUE CHINESE CHESS SET
This genuine ivory, hand-carved chess set has been estimated to have been made in the very early 1900's, before the ivory ban. We believe this is Chinese in origin. There MAY be a part or two missing from some pieces. The wooden chest holds the pieces and measures 17 inches x 17 inches when opened. The case was also hand-made. T are some knicks and scratches in the varnish, but it's still in good shape. The inside lining is in great condition and is still intact. The box has a brass closure.
The kings measure 3.5 inches tall. All the pieces were hand carved, so no two are exactly alike. I have taken some close-up pictures of some of the pieces This set is still beautiful and with no reserve on this auction, is an amazing opportunity to get an extremely rare set at a great price!
I do not play chess, nor do I know the names of all the pieces. 16 total the ivory and 15 pieces are in the darker pieces.
