Please note. This is a part chess set. Three pieces are missing: One black rook, one black pawn and a brown (or neutral) pawn. The ‘canted’ or slanted tops of the knights are part of the original design.

Black Side:

Four pawns with tiny chips to the baluster turning, king and queen with lean and chips to the turning.

Brown Side: 

Nice toffee patination. Chipping to king crown, chip to base of rook, chip to pawn base, tiny chip to queen baluster.
