Portable Gold Tooled Leather Cased Buffalo Horn Chess Set
This is a high quality portable Buffalo Horn Chess Set housed in a two-volume, leather covered, chessboard-box with gold-embossing. The natural and Black Buffalo Horn chessmen stand 2-7/8″ tall and are housed in a 10-1/2″ x 8″, green leather covered book-box which unfolds into a chessboard. The box opens to expose two storage compartments with flaps for securing the chess pieces. The spine of the storage Book/Box reads Chess volume I and Chess Volume II. The Staunton pattern chessmen are nicely carved for a set of this size. The chess set probably dates to the 1950s. The combination chessboard and storage case and chess pieces are in excellent condition.
