A ceramic chess board was uniquely in marble glaze.
Well preserved with faded condition on the rim, the chess board was yielded with minute crackles in the glaze.
It was a good example rather than a practical ware from its lovely size, never the less the surface pattern was a regular one.
A similar piece from earlier date of Sui Dynasty was from documentation.
Date: Tang Dynasty, 9th-10th Century. Dimensions: 12cm x 12cm x 2.8cm.
A CUSTOM-MADE SILK BOX IS INCLUDED.
