My father-in-law just gifted me an ivory #chess set that he picked up in Hokaido, Japan, in 1950.
It's gorgeous. The attention to detail is incredible. I'm very moved that he would gift it to me.
It feels a little weird to own an ivory set. I'll be donating to a non-profit that fights against ivory poaching.
@Argus i would totally keep it as an heirloom.. maybe write a story that a non profit can share.
