It is indeed a great day on the Bay and we are delighted to offer this rare and beautifully carved vintage Chinese chess set. This is one of the earlier sets of its kind.
Precision hand carving with remarkable details is the hallmark of this unique set. The king and queen are shown as emporors, the bishops are represented as Mandarins; the rooks as pagodas; and each pawn is different, carved in the likeness of the taoists immortals carrying their respective auspicious emblems. The chess pieces are stored in drawers in the chessboard/table.Similar sets have been produced recently, but none match the quality of this or the others that were made in the 1960s. The chess pieces are in very good vintage condition. The chessboard is in good condition with nicks and scrapes consistent with age and use as shown in the photos. Please enjoy the photos for more details as they help to inform the description. The item "Vtg Handcrafted Chinese Wood Chess Set Immortals c-1960s + Board/Storage" is in sale since Thursday, March 28, 2019.
