Mid 20th century, all unique hand carved chess pieces in Arab style, in very good condition

Unique handmade solid wooden Arab chess pieces on a wooden chess board. Because all the chess pieces have each been cut from wood separately, no single piece is exactly alike.

The combination of the natural structure of the wood used and the exhibited craftsmanship makes this set particularly distinctive.

The chess pieces vary in height from 15 cm (King) to about 9.5 cm (Rook). The pawns are approximately 13 cm tall.

The chess pieces have green felt at the bottom.
The chess board measures 43 x 43 cm.
Total weight: approx. 3 kg

The 'knights' of the white chess pieces are cut like camels.

Material: Solid wood

Condition: Everything in very good condition, slightly played with.

A total of 35 items (chessboard and chess pieces).

Shipping: worldwide shipping, properly packaged by DHL, within the Netherlands by PostNL - ALWAYS with track and trace code.

    De aangegeven prima staat bleek in werkelijkheid beduidend minder te zijn.
    Is hier eigenlijk controle op door Catawiki?

    Vervelend te vernemen dat u niet geheel tevreden bent met uw aankoop.

    In de beschrijving heb ik naar eer en geweten de diverse gebreken uitgebreidt vermeld zodat het geleverde overeenkomt met de beschrijving. De 'prima staat' refereert aan 'de antieke behuizing met knoppen.'

    zie onderstaande copie van de Catawiki veilingtekst:

    "De antieke behuizing met knoppen en toetsen zijn, op enkele kleinere beschadigen na, in prima conditie, een lederen sluiting ontbreekt, de andere is idem aan de blaasbalg, de lederen-riem, omkasting , en bnnerwerk in goede staat. Beide discant-zijblatten zijn los-gemonteerd, een discant-zijblatt is ooit vervangen. "

    'Conditie; Zeer Goed, met kenmerken zoals hierboven beschreven."

    Ik hoop dat bovenstaande aan u meer duidelijkheid geeft over de aangeboden conditie en mijn intentie om mijn kavels eerlijk en volledig te beschrijven.

    Met vriendelijke groet
