Encore' German Ivory Bust Set Postcard
5x7" postcard from our Encore exhibit, which entails Jon Crumiller's extensive collection of ivory chess sets from around the world.
"The carver of this masterful German set paid great attention to detail in the costumes of the members of the court. Each includes carefully sculpted details like jewelry, elaborate headpieces, and delicate lace. The infantrymen wear ivory representations of metal morion helmets, which were generally used during the 16th and 17th centuries."
