Here is a nice set of classic medieval style chess playing pieces for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself!
The chess pieces are made of some sort of stone. Nice classic medieval design to the playing pieces. There is no felt on the bottom of the pieces. We do not observe any damage or repairs to any of the pieces, with the exception of one of the pawns is chipped at the base and the same one broke in half and was glued back together sometime in the past. The one set is colored and off-white/cream and the other set a green-gray color. The set also comes with a hardboard playing board.
We see no maker's mark or country of origination noted. The pieces certainly show wear to the finish from being used over the years. The king's are 2.7" tall, the pawns are 1.75" tall. The bases are 1-3/16' to 1" across. The case is 15.25" across, by 9" wide, by 2-5/8" tall. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
We would venture to guess that the chess set dates back to the 1950s, to 1960s. Not sure of the maker or country of origination of either the pieces or the game board. The case they come is made of cardboard and has a blue cloth covering to it. Some wear and tear to the fabric and one of the bone and fabric latches is missing. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
