It is a story, about the good king, about to marry, when the evil king, kidnaps the girl. It is a very lengthy book, and a difficult read, but, it gives the background, of the Ramayama chess set. In taking pictures, of the chess board, I put all of the chess pieces, in a small box. Upon completion of the photography, I put the pawns, in their slots, and I could not find, the replacement, or the glued piece. I have already scrubbed the chess board, with a special wood cleaner.
I then put a coat of sealer on, to protect the inlays, and protect the wood. The surface is so nice, you can see your reflection, on the chess board. I don't know the type of wood that was used, but there is a lot of figural grain, running thru the wood. This chess set, comes from a smoke free home, a pet free home, a child free home, and no children come to visit. It is also an alcohol free home, as both my brother and I are retired, and on a variety of prescription medications.
PLEASE NOTE: The last photo, shows the bottom, of one of the chess pieces. These concentric rings, are common, on half the chess pieces. But most of the pieces, will only have, 1, 2, or 3 rings. In studying this, on the internet, there is a strong possibility, that these chess pieces are ivory.
Even if they are not ivory, the new owner, will have a chess set, he can be proud of. The item "RARE RAMAYAMA HAND CARVED BONE FIGURAL CHESS SET COMPLETE SUPER NICE" is in sale since Friday, April 2, 2021.
