The Pepys bone chessmen

This exquisite camel bone set, referred to as The Pepys, is an attractive Anglo-Indian design hand carved and turned by the best artisans in Amritsar, India. It features a 6.25" King and is supplied as ivory white pieces and the opposing pieces are stained black which is the most popular color for this style of set with players.

The set is supplied as a 32 piece set with green felt pads and is not supplied with a chessboard. The diameter of the King's base is 1.68" and we recommend a chessboard with a square size of 2 1/2". The smallest piece, the pawn measures 3.21" tall and has a base diameter of 1.13"If the set is to be used for occasional play (and not just display) the chessboard shown here may appeal to you: 2 1/2" square Bone Chessboard 

These Pepys design is modeled after the set which is on display in the London Museum and are primarily decoration pieces and not playing pieces. The design we have here is the original Pepys which is a players' set as well as a decoration set. 

This set has been sold by us for over 12 years as have many of our camel bone pieces. We take care to ensure that the quality is maintained by our master craftsmen and do not sell low cost inferior sets that would not pass our rigorous inspection criteria.
