Chinese Ivory Chess Set
Older ivory Chinese chess set. Despite being well carved, it looks like the king and "queen" are actually bone and from something else. The other 30 pieces are all ivory and show a nice grain on flat surfaces. There are a few nicks on some of the red pieces that could be easily touched up with a bit of paint. Some other small condition problems such as the decapitated knight (Could be glued back). Most of the pawns have lost their swords but I do have about half a dozen loose ones so, again, some simple glue work would help. No, it is not a perfect set but it is priced to move. The tray they are shown in is not included in the price as I don't want to ship glass but if it is really needed this can be added to the price by invoice. US delivery only, less California.
