Fine Chess Sets and Games

Chess and Games is still proving one of our most popular sales of Collectables. This auction consists of over 200 lots of fine chess sets, antique games, playing cards, and associated rare books and papers. Items include an 18th century Russian Kholomogory walrus ivory chess set, (£6000-8000); a 17th Century Indian ivory inlaid chess board (£3000-4000), and Greco's "The Royall Game of Chesse-Play", published in 1656 (£2000-3000).

Our regular bi-annual sales are attracting international interest with keen collectors from all over the world. Bloomsbury is the only auction house to hold regular chess and games auctions, and are considered to be leading specialists in this attractive field.
