This lot consists of a set of chess pieces after a Staunton design, with a beautiful matching wooden storage box. The wooden chess pieces are very nicely carved, especially the knights. The wood is probably ebony, it has a beautiful look. The chess pieces presumably date from around 1950-1960. The chessboard is probably a little younger.
All pieces are in good condition with a little wear here and there. See last photo. The pieces are weighted, which is easy to see because some pieces no longer have the green felt underneath.
The chessboard also has some slight wear but is otherwise in good condition.
The king's height is 8 cm, the dimensions of the chessboard are 48.5 cm x 48.5 cm x 1.5 cm. The total weight is approximately 2 kg.
Well packaged and shipped via registered mail.
