The set is on its chessboard made from ivory. The dark boxes are coloured like the dark ivory chess pieces.
The game has its full 32 pieces, they are in used condition, the structure of the ivory is more visible on the black pieces.
Dimensions:
King: 10 cm
Queen: 8.7 cm
Rooks: 7.5 cm
Knights: 7.2 cm
Bishops: 8.7 cm
Pawns: 5.5 cm
The board measures 29 x 29 cm.
All of the pieces are made of solid ivory.
Good condition, with traces of wear and tear.

This is antique ivory.
This item comes with a certificate of the certified appraisal office Ruyten, signed by expert Jan Willem Ruyten.
This object will be sent by registered mail only within Europe.
