Up for offer is this very old antique/vintage Chinese Asian Chess Game. The wood storage box opens to player board. The chess pieces are hand carved and very detailed. Hand Carved Player Pieces are stored in pull out drawer compartments.The compartments are lined in a soft red material with straps attached to hold/protect each chess piece in secure place for storage. Surrounding the outer edges of wood playing board is all hand carved and grooved, Appears to be ornate grooved carved dragon design. Chest has two Brass tone Metal ornate handles (also decorated) with embossed floral design on metal, Handle for carrying. The Board is just truly amazing. Each tile is hand carved with intricate details and design, Each tile is different in designed artwork with colors. This intricate detailed work can be felt by touch on each tile square.. The Artwork on each tile square on chess board is beautiful asian artwork. Very similar to the look of majong tiles. The ornate squares alternate with smooth black squares on chess board. When box is closed and opened, it is like the storage drawers are hidden, part of the wood surrounding the wood board, almost like secret compartments.....When box is opened/game board displayed,, the drawers can be slid out revealing the playing pieces.

The pieces are all hand carved and detailed. All the player pieces are Asian characters Immortals, Buddhas, Warriors, Horses, Mythological Gods, etc... Hand carved, Smooth but carved details can be felt by touch. Green &  reddish brown. I cannot identify as to what material the player pieces are made of ? I believe they are of a type stone material. All the pieces are in excellent condition, with exception to one that has a very tiny flee bite small chip on top of the piece/pagado,This cannot really be noticed unless closely examined. The feel and look is of stone where this small chip is (upclose shown in picture) this is why I feel the pieces are made of a stone type material. Light surface scratches on outside case. Each piece is a work of hand carved art! I made zoom feature available to view all the impressive details.

The entire chess game is truly an amazing work of art. It is very old in age, but such an original and very unique Chinese Asian treasure to display as well as "play".
