(BX11). A really unique hand carved box and chess set, in ebony and mahogany, which I bought back 23 years ago when I visited Africa. I think it came from Malawi. Use as a box for odds and ends or to play chess (which I don't)- or just as a table decoration. Beautiful hand carved pieces- giraffes, faces etc. Not your average piece of artwork! There is a crack in the base, due to the temperature change of an African summer to a New Zealand winter (see pics), but the whole base is very thick, solid and it doesn't make any difference to the strength. I have never actually used it for anything and it was new when purchased. Needs to be rubbed down with oil to bring out the red colour of the mahogany.
Measures 31 x 31cm and 12.5cm height. Pieces are 5-6.5 cm high.

Note: colours may vary slightly due to differences in monitors. Sorry, no price reductions or offers to watchers.
