A remarkable Indian ivory, ebony and sandalwood compendium from the first half of the the 19th Century of the highest quality, this Vizagapatham compendium is remarkable not only for the quality of the workmanship but also the fact that it has its original chess set and backgammon pieces in sandal wood and ivory to match the box and board. We believe it also has its original key. 
We have supplied clients with these box/boards and separately sets of playing pieces over the years but to be able to offer an ensemble that we believe to be original after nearly 200 years is a pleasure. The perfume of the sandalwood still lingers. 
As the ivory ban approaches, the demand from clients is that we find the best items of any genre to give clients lasting pleasure in the knowledge that what they own is special and we believe this fine Vizagapatham compendium fits the bill.
