Chinese Unique Handmade Ivory chess set
by Louis Tourillon
(Montreal, Quebec, Canada)
My grandfather bought that almost 80 years ago.
I do not have a clue as to how much he paid for it, but he was a mean of good taste and means....( chauffered mimousine...)
As one can see on the few pictures that I uploaded, the base consist of balls that are hand carved and there are balls within balls within balls, it is a fabulous piece of work.
There are no scratches. no pieces missing, every thing is mint....
