Antique Chinese Chess Set with Hand carved Ivory Pieces
This set is Chinese with Hand-carved Ivory chess pieces. The Kings are approximately 4-4.5" tall.
All of the pieces feature ornate carving and scrimshaw detailing.
The Chinese ivory chess set comes with large, hand-carved figures that resemble “emperors, philosophers, warriors on horseback, pagodas and the immortals of Chinese mythology. Please see photo.
A similar, but less detailed, set on LiveAuctioneers had an auction estimate of $7500-10,000 and sold for $6500.
Another near identical set is on the market for $24,500. We believe it to be roughly 1920-1930.
I run an online business, so payment is through PayPal business invoice to protect both buyer and seller. More photos available upon request.
