* This listing is for a fine German Barlycorn Nuremberg Chess Set which is complete with no missing or replacement pieces. * I am certain of my identification as the set came with the original stained wooden box with the stamp " Nurnberg" Pawn no.6 written in pencel. * The pawn's are very slender in the turning and there are other slight differences in style to English versions. * The pieces turned from bovine bone, with the red pieces probably stained with Cochineal. * The height of the King is 92mm high and the height of pawn is 36mm high
Celia Rose Antiques has clarified that the Barlycorn Nuremberg Chess Set Original Box (LA355300) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1880/1890
In overall good condition with no obvious damage commensurate with age and handling. The white pieces would benefit from a light clean in warm water but obviously not the red pieces as this could remove the red staining.
