This listing is for a fine barleycorn nuremberg chess set which is complete with no missing or replacement pieces. Beautifully turned pieces are made entirely from bovine bone and would probably date to the late 19th century. They came with the original wooden stained box with the stamp "nurnberg" pawn no 6 in the corner in pencil on the base. In overall good antique condition with no obvious damage but commensurate with age and handling. The white pieces wood benefit from a light careful wash in warm water but obviously not the red pieces as this would damage the cochineal used in the colouring process.

The size shown below is for the king.
