An Antique Ivory chess set is very valuable. These rare chess sets were made from ivory in the past, many centuries ago. They have a different form than modern day chess pieces as they reflect a different culture. Some are from the 7th and 8th centuries. Nathaniel Cook and John Jaques created the first ivory set of Staunton chess pieces in the 19th century. The Staunton style became the standard. Please note that I am not an expert for ivory chess sets, so please don't ask me about the value of these sets.
