Burmese Ivory Figural Set, 19th Century

Jon's main chess page

A rare figural ivory set from Burma. This set is larger (8 cm king) than the other Burma figural ivory sets I've seen, including the one other Burma set in my collection with a 6.7 cm king.

This set was formerly in Harbeson's collection, sold in a Sotheby Parke Bernet auction in October 1979.
