Here is a great chess game set for your buying consideration. Recently acquired it at an estate sale. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself.
The chess pieces seem to be made of wood and carved as each is unique. The figures appear to be Asian characters. I did not observe any major damage or repairs to any of the pieces. The pieces certainly show wear and tear from being used over the years. The board has beautifully carved figures at the four borders of the playing surface, 2 birds and 2 dragons.
The wood chess case is 19" across and 6.5" wide folded. The case has metal hinges that are securely attached to the case and operate properly.
The set opened is 19-1/8" across on each side, by 3.25" tall. Each playing square is 1.75" across and appear to be of wood or wood veneer. The playing board is built into the top of it. The case is made entirely of wood and wood veneer. There is a drawer on each side that pulls out that holds one player's pieces. There is some minor finish loss and scratching to the case's surface but nothing that takes away form its' good looks. Veneer shows some wear along the edges of the case. The case also has two metal carrying handles on it that are securely attached to the case. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
I would venture to guess that the chess set dates back to the late 40s, to mid 60s. Don’t be shy to make an offer, I am always open to reasonable suggestions.
