A rare find!

The overall opened size of this foldable chess set box is 18" x 18". The height of the king is 5" tall. It is all wood with two drawers on the side to house the pieces. Brass hinges and handles adorn the carved wooden base. 

Chess appeared first, fully-formed, in North-Western India. Some people say that the earliest ancestor is 4-player Chaturanga played with dice which metamorphosed into the 2 player strategy game. Backed up by 2 or 3 Chinese legends, the other primary theory is that Chess came to India from China.

Condition: Very Fine Chessmen, all pieces in excellent condition. Some slight tears on three squares of the light balsa wood, some scratching on the outside of the box.
