Dynasty

Chess pieces, South Shields Market

Chess pieces

The king and queen complete with their court, and an army of foot soldiers, an entire Chinese dynasty nicely presented in a velvet lined wooden box. Probably not ivory, but a nice looking imitation! ( I do worry about the king’s arms though).

Just one of a myriad of interesting bargains that could be picked up at our regular Friday “Flea Market” in South Shields Market Place.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/125 second, f8, iso 200
