It's becoming increasingly hard to find these leather-bound boards in good condition. This is in a "good to very good" condition. There is slight wear and rubbing to the edges, a 2cm loss to a lower corner, a small hole in the leather on one side and the usual scuffs and scratches to the leather. Otherwise, the board is fresh, relatively bright and clean. The gilt-tooling is crisp. The chess squares are 4.5cm wide.
