A magnificent set. The board is good, but has relatively minor age cracks along the spine. The squares are intact and are not lifting and there are one or two very minor age cracks. The penwork borders are excellent. The interior is excellent. Chess squares are 4.5cm wide. 

The chess set is very good with a very slight lean to the upper half of the brown king. Counters are good with very minor chipping to some of the edges.

Overall, a fine example of the type and a magnificent addition to any collection. Recommended.
