Very unusual 19th century complete Chinese export ivory backgammon set consisting of 15 red and 15 white carved checkers, 1 red and 1 white dice cups and 4 dice. Cups are carved in the round, and checkers on both sides with numerous figures of scholars in different pursuits among trees, banana leaves and buildings. Excellent carving with minute detailing, much better quality than is usual for this type of export art. Beautiful wear and patina, in excellent condition. Checker diameter 1 1/4 inches, cup height 2 3/8 inches.
