Once thought to be a style of set created in Burma, which today is known as Myanmar, research has proven that this ornate type of set was actually produced in China. This ornately carved set features heavily ornamented, tall pieces better suited for display than play. The sets both also feature figural representations of rulers, horses, and towers atop bases with elaborate floral decoration. 5" x 7"

In 2015, the World Chess Hall of Fame premiered the exhibition "Encore! Ivory Chess Treasures from the John Crumiller Collectionfocused on the most stunning ivory sets from one of the most extensive chess set collections in America.
