Carved Ivory Oriental Chess Set & Book
There is no original box for this ivory chess set, so instead we’ll throw in a book on Chess Strategy. The book was first published in 1915, this edition published in 1934. Now the chess set we don’t have any provenance for, but what we do know is that it is made from ivory – white ivory and ivory that has been stained brown. The tallest chess piece measures 7.5cm in height and the smallest 3.4cm in height. It dates early and there is no damage to figures.
We will of course package up in a box to post or freight to you and should you need a little chess piece box for them, there are plenty of little timber and resin boxes within the antique centre we could pop them in for you for a few extra dollars.
