Antique Chinese Hand Carved Ivory Chess Set
by Pete Kamphaus
This unique, antique Chinese hand carved ivory chess set was bought in China 0ver 75 years ago by my father during WW2. Although it is full with intricate work it is not damaged. They are Brown and White as is the usual. It has been sitting in my nightstand in Germany since 1972. Prior to that it was in the attic of our home in Southern California. Rest assured it has been well looked after.
All 32 pieces are well packed in a protective casing which doubles as a fold-up playing board. The elastic holding the pieces has since lost it's elasticity however the silk inlay the pieces sit in is in original condition as is the fold up playing board which is made of "Teak" wood.
The King is 10cm tall, the Queen is 8.5cm and the pawns are 5cm.
Photographs are attached.
My asking price is only $6000.00 (USD) which includes packaging and shipping.Payment method can be Pay-Pal, Money order, Cash.
