This is a very rare and hard to find complete, hand carved set with board and Box. You can see in the photo of the two light colored knights where the jowel lines are different, there are other small carving differences as well but this is the easiest to see. It is a complete set, the kings measure 76mm (about 3 tall).
The knights also have the typical Lardy flat heads and are two pieces on the knights. They are solid wood and the lighter pieces have a beautiful honey glow to the.
They are also weighted and have a very nice feel. I believe this may be a very early French Lardy set. The pieces are in excellent condition, the board has one place that has a paint rub on it. I have not tried to remove it. Otherwise everthing else is in near perfect condition with very little wear.Rare EARLY Antique vtg French Pre WWII Chess Pieces set Box Hand Carved Lardy?
