Vintage Turned & Handcarved Bone Chess Set For Sale
Wonderful old, turned andhand carvedBone Chess set. Not marked as to country of origin. But nicely made and best guess is they are older than 1970.
The pieces are all 2 piece, the top parts are threaded and screwed into the bases. The parts they could not turn like the tops of the King, Queen and Rooks etc. were then hand carved.
As to size, the King is 2.5" tall and the Pawns are about1 1/16" tall. The rest you can figure pretty close by comparing the sizes in the photos.
Excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The black pieces are dyed bone and the white pieces show age discoloration.
