Neat repair to white bishop, plus loss of varnish to top, cross of white king probably replaced (but an excellent restoration), neat repairs to white pawn collars, very minor chips and scuffs, hairline crack to black queen and black bishop, neat repair to black pawn collar, nice figuring to the ebony, otherwise ‘very good’ to ‘excellent’. 

Cartonpierre Box: ‘Very Good’ to ‘Excellent’. Lid detached, velveteen interior clean without tears or stains, condition of paper-mache generally excellent and intact in an ‘above-average’ condition, but missing two castellations. Yellow label slightly grubby with a small hole to the right.
