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

Please note that as the chess set contains antique elephant ivory 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. Please contact me if you need further information.

Condition

Excellent. The black base has presumably been re-stained.

A Note From Luke

Pleasing example of a bishop from an East India (John) Company chess set. The cavalryman is in the uniform of the native forces of the East India Company. These sets were made in the first half of the nineteenth century and intended for export to Great Britain.
