The large chess set comprises a chessboard complete with 32 chess pieces. The board is of gold and black squares, bordered by ormolu chains and posts, and set on sloped gilt sides with intricately worked corners mounted with soldiers and set with precious stones, and central panels of turquoise enamel to each side, all set on a mahogany base with four pierced, foliate feet. The playing surface opens upwards on hinges to reveal a velvet lined interior fitted with chains to hold the figural pieces. The figural pieces are set on circular bases and all wear enamel cloaks, the colour of which distinguishes the opposing sides. The knights hold shields, and all pieces are exceptionally detailed.
