Boxwood Side:

Very nice ‘toffee’ colour and attractive figuring to the wood. Some tiny chipping to the crown points of the Queen, one Rook with a ‘lean’, two baizes with small holes.

Ebony Side:

Good. Four baizes with small holes.

Box:

Box is later in date than the chess set. Scuffs and some marks, but no cracks. Slight wear and fraying to the green baize interior.
