This is the other set I bought from the estate. Its solid ivory, hand carved, and its deffinitely and older set. I haven't been able to find any comparable ones online, so I don't know its age or where it was made. Is anyone knowledgable about chess sets? Does the style ring any bells?

    Yeah I did see a few Indian sets that were thin like this on Google Images, wooden sets

    I tried "antique german chess set" but I couldn't find any forms like this, off the top of your head do you know of a webpage with photos?

    This is an Indian-made ivory set from 2Q 20th century.

    Colin, here's an almost-identical set, if you follow this auction on and note the results, it'll give a good indication of the current value of this type of set.

    I'll see what it goes for
    Thanks again Jon!
