Notes:
chips are in excellent condition -- no nicks, for example. ...  Beautiful, pure shimmering, glistening, unblemished pearl-white as shown above -- all 355 chips are that way.
large-size chips -- of the nine denomination chips, five are 2 inches or more, and the other four are about 1-1/2 inches.  All 355 chips weigh 8 pounds, not including container and packaging.
chips are engraved on one side; other side is plain.
provenance: I got this set from a person who says that his grandparents acqired the set while they were living in Paris, France, during the 1930s.
