A rare early to mid 19th century filigree ivory Indian chess board of great quality, with each square having recessed alternating geometric design ivory filigree work which is surrounded by a green stained ivory border, the board has a border of ivory and ebony surrounding a border of sadeli work to both the top and sides and which is carried onto the chess square dividers.
There are some losses and repairs as one would expect for a used board of this age.
