Red Side:

Stain faded to pink. Slightly rubbed in places. Some iink stains. All bobbles present on crosses.

White Side:

All bobbles present on crosses, nice cross-hatching to the ivory, a few very minor hairline age cracks. Neat repair to King cross. Old repair to one bishop.


Paper lined interior a bit scuffed and stained. A few surface scratches and minor staining. Some chipping to veneer on front. Otherwise 'good'. No key.

Overall View:

A good antique ivory set. Well carved, in an extra-large, above average size. Plus a nicely inlaid antique box.
