The chess game/chess board is in used condition - 4 chess pieces are slightly damaged, see pictures

This old Russian chess really is a wonderful object!! What makes it so special is that there is no Queen, but instead there are 4 Kings (different shapes, see pictures). The chessboard is a heavy version and I haven’t seen any version like this one.

Dimensions: 41 x 41 cm.
Weight: 3.3 kilos (really heavy)
Material: it seems to be an old kind of bakelite, but unfortunately I cannot say for sure

Flaws: 4 chess pieces are slightly damaged and the chess board is a bit arched, but I am sure that is something that can be fixed.

It will be securely packed - I will wrap the chess pieces individually.

  • Badly damaged during shipping. I expected better packaging especially after paying Eur 200.00 just for shipping & packing. Contacted seller, but no resolution was offered. Disappointing transaction.
