Chinese Upright Chess Pieces.
A set of Chinese Upright Chess pieces, crafted from Boxwood and lacquered black and ivory. A very unique feature of these chess pieces is the natural wooden bodies which are imprinted with representative characters. The King stands an impressive 4-5/8″ tall with a 1-1/4″ diameter base. The chessmen are unweighted and rest atop green self-adhesive pads. A close-up image shows the King’s cross and Queen’s ball finials. These sets were produced in the late 1970s. The Chinese Upright chess Pieces are like new and are housed in a replacement box. The Anri chessboard shown in the image is not included in this offering but can be purchased separately elsewhere on this website. For a more complete listing of our Estate Specials, follow this link.
