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.
Good. Four baizes with small holes.
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.
A Note From Luke
Nice ‘toffee’ colour and figuring to the boxwood.
