All Pieces in very good condition, with only minor chips as commensurate with age and perhaps light usage. A couple of flags appear to me missing from pieces, which perhaps can be replaced, but this does not deflect it's impressive appearance. A very rare set, beautifully & meticulously hand carved in bovine bone with superb detail and unique centre ball design. Complete with original folding board 20 square when open.
Box folds in half and is lined inside with groves for storing all the individual pieces. The padded bases screw onto the chess pieces, which may become loose in transit; these just need screwing back on, or suck together for permanent fixing. A fabulous set, complete with original board, for collectors & enthusiasts alike. Super size pieces, with the King measuring 15cm (6).
Size: King 15cm (6");Queen 13cm (5");Bishop 9.5cm (3.75");Knight 9cm (3.5);Castle 9.5cm (3.75");Rook 7cm (2.75). Open Box Size: 51cm 51cm 5cm (20" x 20" x 2). Closed Box/Case Size : 51cm 25.5cm 10cm (20" x 10" x 4). I can even arrange collection from your premises. Free Courier cost is to U.
