Excellent. Nice shiny patina. Green baizes excellent. Natural flaws to the wood.
Excellent. Pieces are hand-turned, so slight variation in pawns.
Good. A few scuffs to varnish. Green baize inside lid a bit rubbed with small loss to corner area. Hinges very slightly loose.
A Note From Luke
Love this set! Excellent antique players' set in the Old English Pattern. Hand-turned with nice carving to the knights' horse heads. Lovely condition, and in the original wooden box. Recommended.
