China  (Asia)

China. The 1st set does have exceptional beautiful pieces. Especially the voluptuous lady as white Queen. I have never seen a Queen like that in Chinese sets. Unfortunately it is not a complete set, but the pieces were that nice that I could not resist to buy it. And that Queen!

China. Next you see 2 Macao bust sets which both are very well carved. The set with faded red pieces is in my opinion the better one. It is one of my favourites.

China. The other 2 ivory sets are just common antique Chinese sets. Most people are amazed at the puzzle ball chess set, but it is still very common.

  • China, Canton
  • Late 19th century
  • Ivory Kw 14.1; Kz 15.3; p 6.4

China. The wooden set, as told to me early 20th century, is not that common. I have been told that it would represent the Chinese court, but I'm not convinced about that. Too much warriors!
