Quick Overview

King approximately 133mm (51/4") high.
Recommended board size 60mm (23/8") squares.
Requires 2 casting kits( Part No: 621012 & 695008) or 3.5kg of stone powder.

This beautiful set comprises replicas of pieces from different sets carved in ivory from China during the 19th century. The King and Queen resemble pieces of a Kang-Hs (1662-1722) set of the Ch'ing dynasty (1644-1912), and the Bishop and Castle are similar to pieces from a Ch'ien Lung set (1736-1795). The original castle probably featured a pennant flying from a flagpole attached to the chair on the elephant's back. The set is completed by a horseman mounted on a rearing horse, with a footsoldier as the Pawn. All pieces are mounted on matching octagonal bases.
