Dear Fellow Chess Collectors and Antique Chess Aficionados,

Recently enacted U.S. Administrative Regulations on the acquisition of antique ivory have made it impossible to continue acquiring antique chess sets, boards, and other items for my collection. As such, this website will be updated infrequently for the forseeable future, unless these regulations are reversed.
