A first quarter 19th century Cantonese ivory chess set, very delicatelt and finely carved full figural chess set, the natural side carved as King George III and Queen Charlotte with European soldiers against the red stained Chinese Emperor and Empress with oriental troops, an extremely detailed and quality set.

 

A set of this pattern was presented to the House of Commons by US Congressman Arthue Walter to commemorate a match played by telegraph between Members of Parliment and US House of Representatives in 1897. The match was drawn and the set was displayed in the chess room of the House of Commons where it was placed in two glass cases until 1995 when the red Chinese chessmen were stolen.
