 unusual to ever find a cased set like this for bone chips.  They usually come
 in individual small wood boxes, one box for each color

closed set
6-1/2" x 3" x 3."  Leather-lined outside.  Satin-lined inside top.  Snap latch.

box is open
The set originally had 160 pieces (there are 152 pieces now).  As originally planned there were 40 chips for each color -- 10 round, 10 small rectangle and 20 large rectangle.  The chips are on the small side -- round (1-1/16" diameter), small rectangle (1-1/16" x 3/4"), and large rectangle (2-1/8" x 5/8").

chip rack lifted out
Note how the chip carrier can be lifted out revealing a space for a deck of cards and a smaller 2" x 3" space for whatever.  (I paid $40 for this set a flea market/antique show in 1990.)
