Description
Classic Games - Chess Museum Julio Cesar with Board - Bakelite, Taracea wood
U.S. - Second half 20th century

Historical vintage chess of the 60s made of Bakelite in the US by the company Classic Games. Very hard to find because it is a numbered item of a limited edition with slender figures. The king is 125 mm, the horses and the kings stand out due to their incredible finishes, as shown in the photographs. It also includes the exhibition board of perfect squares, made of inlaid wood with more than a thousand pieces of wood and bovine bone embedded in geometric forms of arabesque style. A set exhibited in the best chess museums with American brand history.
Registered and well packed shipping.
