Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Good thing is that it is a full set with 28 pieces. The sets were populat in the Victorian era 1880's - 1890's. The sets usually came with a wooden box with a slide in lid. The rivots were usually made of brass because it would hold up better than gold because gold is alot softer than brass. They were rivoted either with 1, 2 or 4 rivots. As for the value I'll give you 2 different values one for bone the other for ivory. Bone & ebony domino sets from good condition $75.00 to excellent condition with the original box $135.00 US dollars. Ivory & ebony sets from good condition $175.00 to excellent condition with the original box $350.00 US dollars checking with several auction houses and Worthpoint. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike
