SOLD! Vintage Hand-Crafted Chess Set


This hand-made chess set is truly unique… we doubt you’ll ever find another like it!

The chess board itself is the wooden box that all the pieces fit into.  Each square is about 3″ x 3″, and inlaid into the hand made wooden box; when the box is closed, the chessboard makes up the outside of the box.

The chess pieces are hand-carved of two types of wood, with the darker ones being the “black” pieces and the lighter ones the “white” pieces.   Each piece is at least 6″ tall, with the kings and queens nearly a foot high.

When the box is closed with all the pieces inside, it is far heavier than you might expect.

Condition:   Overall, the set is in very good condition although some of the glue has dried out, and the tops of the rooks and a couple of other pieces come off.  (Those pieces were made in two parts and glued together, not carved as a single piece.)

Dimensions:  The exact dimensions will have to be posted later, but my estimate is that open, the chessboard is about 30″ x 36″ and about 4″ high.  The pieces themselves range in height from about 6″-10″.

Price:  $195.00.  5.5% Maine sales tax applies.
