An interesting Dutch bone chess set of elegant shape. Similar , in some way, to the Biedermeier Selenus style. The set comes with its original oblong box- a rare find.

There is an ink inscription in Dutch on the lid. It’s a bit rubbed, but I gather- having shown in to a Dutch friend- that it describes how the set was used by the owner on holiday.

Charming find.
