Yunnan Go (Weiqi) chess sets
Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-2
Yunnan Go Chess, abbreviated as “Yun Chess” (Yun stands for Yunnan), is a treasure of the go chess lovers at home and abroad. It was originally produced in a place located in Yongcang Prefecture (now Baoshan Prefecture in Yunnan Province), so it is also called “Yong Chess”.
It has a history of more than five hundred years. In both Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1616-1911) dynasties, it was a tribute to the Emperors. The white chess is as pure as jade while the black one is as black as agate. The chess is packed in a traditional porcelain artistic container or in a straw knitted box.
