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.

Good. Nicely patinated. Some rubbing, as to be expected and a few surface cracks to the finish. A pleasing object.

A Note From Luke

A pleasing Indian antique chessman with an attractive patination. Most likely to be a pawn from a rare and unusual set of large size. From the mid 19th century.
