White Side:

A few small 'natural' flaws to the ivory on several base undersides, slight age yellowing to the ivory, turner's mark to the underside of white knight base, old repair to bobble of one bishop, old repair to jaw of white knight, otherwise immaculate, with no chips.

Red Side:

Slight variation to the dark red stain in places, again, a few turner's marks to the underside of the bases, otherwise 'near immaculate' with no chips.

Box:

Good. A few old scuffs around escutcheon. Green baize lining in good condition. No key.
