An early 19th century rare Rajasthan polychrome ivory chess set stained red, gold and green, Royal pieces are on covered thrones, bishops as camels, equestrian knights and elephants as rooks, from the Lothar Schmid collection.

 

Lothar Schmid was a German Grandmaster who represented west Germany in eleven Chess Olympiads and was the chief arbiter at several world championship matches including the infamous 1972 match between Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer. He not only had a large chess library but also a wide and admired chess set collection. His collections owed much to connections forged with worldwide dealers, during his tournament travels from 1950 onwards.
