This is a discussion of antique bone chess sets and their restoration. Because of the nature of bone (brittle) and the shapes of bone (not very thick), antique bone chess sets tend to have been constructed with narrow segments. They frequently snap and break. A bone chess set in need of restoration can thus look a disaster...
The repairs process is usually fairly straightforward, however, and this is reviewed here by master turner and restorer, Alan Dewey (CHESSSPY).
