Near excellent. Intact. No loss to papier mache figures. Lid is detached. Red label on reverse a bit faded and stained. Red paper backing slightly faded. Minor hairline cracks to the lid and small loss to lid edge.
Slight rubbing to edges. White king stamped JAQUES LONDON on underside of base.
Neat repair to collar of white pawn. One knight slightly browned. Ball on one pawn re-stuck on.
