Very good. One of the ivory squares on the board/box has an age crack, and there is slight age 'yellowing' to the ivory. The board/box has a nice polish. The set is very good with a very nice patina. One of the dark brown rooks has probably been restored, and there is a small chip to one of the finials on the lighter coloured queen. Signs or repair (ie age crack to white king). Minor age cracks.
