Important Notice on the Export of Antique Elephant Ivory (CITES)

Please note that as the chess set contains antique elephant ivory dating from pre 1947 it will require a CITES export licence to export to destinations outside the European Union. Due to recent US legislation, it is with regret that we are unable to export this item to the United States of America and to France. Please contact me if you need further information.

Condition

Excellent. Slight scuffing and light wear to the leather box, and indent marks to the inner velveteen lining. Counters are generally ‘very good’ but have some minor scratches and wear due to use. Malachite stain slightly rubbed. Asprey’s stamp nice and crisp. No key.

 

A Note From Luke

Quality backgammon set by Asprey’s, dating from the 1930’s. One side is stained green to simulate malachite. In the original box with the Asprey’s stamp.
