A boxed set of 32 Chinese Cantonese carved ivory counters all contained in a purpose made leather box, one side natural ivory, the other stained green, each piece is carved individually to both sides with rural scenes with either 2 or 3 people under under trees, some also with buildings. I am trying to see if these carvings have any significance as I am not sure why they have carved 16 pieces for each side and the only game I can think of that uses 16 pieces would be Chinese chess. The other use for these, would be an exceptionally fine set of backgammon counters, with a spare for each colour.
