This is a handmade African chess set made of faux ivory. The board itself is very heavy and measures 13 1/2" x 13 1/2" x 1/2". The pieces are in very good condition and measure from 2" x 3/4" x 3/4" on the smallest piece to 5 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" on the largest piece. Made between 1910-1920 this amazing piece from the Belgian Congo. A very unusual chess set!
