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. Black base has, presumably, been re-stained.

A Note From Luke

Chessman from an early/mid 19th century “East India Company” set, probably a queen. Good quality and nicely carved. Note the parasol or umbrella.
