From my collection to yours:
Magnificent Franklin mint Coca Cola Stained Glass filled 24k Gold Chess Set.
For your consideration I have for you this Magnificent Franklin Mint Coca Cola Stained Glass filled 24k gold Chess Set.
This Magnificent Franklin Mint Coca Cola Stained Glass Chess Set is simply beautiful!
Crafted in the finest materials, the playing surface is inspired by the treasured "Coca-Cola" stained glass lamps of the early 1900s. It sets alternating red and white squares within inner and outer frames of yellow and green, all in authentic Victorian style stained glass. Each panel is hand-cut, individually smoothed, then arranged and soldered into place. Since each such surface has its own unique variations in cut and color, no two game boards can possibly be identical, making your chess set a One-of-a-kind masterpiece!
The finished board is set into a hand-assembled hardwood frame, then soldered to assure stability. The frame's Victorian style open fretwork lets light filter through, illuminating the board and enhancing the beauty of the glass. The logo appliques on all four sides of the frame are taken from the same era. Eash is individually hand-painted with fine enamels, then lavishly embellished with 24 karat gold to intensify the elegance of the work.
The bodies of all 32 chess pieces are based on the design of a sought-after and valuable " Coca-Cola " syrup dispenser of the 1890s. Each chess piece is also accented with 24 karat gold, then hand-enameled to distinguish the opposing sides. The Pawns all bear the red-and-white "Coca-Cola" dot, while the Kings and Queens are also enhanced with the "Coca-Cola" logo.
Includes: Game board, 32 chess pieces in foam protected box,
Game board measures approximately 14¼" square by 2¼" high. Felt on the four feet of the game board provides protection for your furniture surface.
The 32 detailed chess pieces, which range from 1 3/8" to 2¼" tall), have a flat base which reads, "Coca Cola brand Chess". Distributed by the Franklin Mint
