A Rare mid 19th Century Indian bone playing set. In China and India, the craftsmen were often retained to copy European and in particular English sets but what is becoming clearer is that there were master carvers who stepped outside the world of plagiarism and developed their own designs which capture the essence of the good playing set. This is a fine example with a deference to the great English designs but with a very specific style.
