Late 19th/ early 20th century Ivory chess set in the Asian/Muslim style.
Of small size( king measures 4.9 cms high with base diameter of 1.4 cms) this probably indicates a travelling set originally used with a cloth board. Two black ink rings to the base differentiate between the sides.
A few minor "nibbles"; with one 'black' pawn having a more noticeable piece off the first turning below the 'head', and some ink spots to 'black' Queen (photos supplied on requested)
