Product Description

A stunning feat of craftmanship to produce a Georgian Doll’s House Miniature Boxed Chess Set.

The pieces have been very finely turned out of cow bone (Bos taurus) and then half of them have been stained red in cochineal. They are incredibly delicate. The chess pieces are kept in a small box that doubles up as a chessboard. The box is beautifully made of mahogany, with a sliding lid in a chequerboard finish. On the underside is written: ‘Aleck’s 1822’.

Condition is very good. There is evidence of repairs to some pieces and one red bishop is missing. Rare and very collectable item.

Size pawn: 15mm (9/16 inch)
Size box: 5.2 x 5.2 x 1.6 cm (2 x 2 x 5/8 inches)
Weight: 19 g
