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.


Cartonpierre Box:

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.

Red Side:

Slight rubbing to edges. White king stamped JAQUES LONDON on underside of base.

White Side:

Neat repair to collar of white pawn. One knight slightly browned. Ball on one pawn re-stuck on.




A Note From Luke

A good example of an antique Jaques ivory set. King comes in at just under 3 inches high. The Cartonpierre box is in an excellent, above average condition. The fitted interior has a raised inner base.
