THE LORD OF THE RINGSTHE NOBLE COLLECTION PEWTER CHESS SET WITH 3 COMPLETE SETS OF PLAYING PIECES MINT CONDITION - VERY RARE! You are bidding on THE LORD OF THE RINGS CHESS SET, BY THE NOBLE COLLECTION. This is a Very Beautiful, Impressive Chess Set. The Set was Released by The Noble Collection & Licensed by New Line Cinema. The Board is Made of A Resin Material. It is 14" X 14" X 4". An Ancient Relief Map of Middle Earth is Mounted Below the Playing Surface, so you Can See the Map Through it. Half of the Squares on the Board are Clear and Half are Frosted. The Base also Features Actual Images and Scenes from the Thrilling New Line Cinema Motion Picture Trilogy. The Base Appears to be Made of Stone and Has 6 Alcoves Along Each Side. The Alcoves will Each Hold A Chess Piece for Display Purposes or to Use During the Game Play to Hold Opponent's Captured Pieces. In the Middle, between Three Alcoves on Two of the Sides are Scenes From the Movies - On One Side the Picture is Frodo and the Good Guys & on the Opposite Side it is the Evil Characters. On the Other Two Sides, it Has A Round Gold-tone Seal that Says "The Lord of the Rings". Each of the Chess Pieces are Precise Miniature Sculptures in Fine, Solid Pewter & are Beautiful, Very Detailed Workmanship. The Sculptured Pieces were Designed to Look Like the Cast Members From the Movies & are so Realistic they were Personally Approved by the Individual Actor. Each Figure Sits on A Gold-tone Base that is Approximately 1/2". The Good Characters Have a Green Ring Around the Base & the Evil Characters Have a Dark Blue Ring Around the Base. Each of the Chess Pieces Have Black Felt on the Bottom. The Pieces Range From 1 1/2" in Height to 3" in Height, Depending on the Piece. The Pawns are All Approximately 1 1/2" Tall. They are Hobbits on the Green Pieces and Orcs on the Blue Pieces, but Each Individual Piece is Different From the Others, so No Two Are Alike. This Chess Set Originally Came With the Board & One Set of Pieces from "The Fellowship of the Ring". Sometime Later, The Noble Collection Released A Set of Pieces from "The Two Towers" & Later they Released A Set of Pieces From "The Return of the King". Each of these Sets of Pieces Had to Be Purchased Separately When They Were Released. This Auction Includes All Three Sets of Pieces. You use the Original Pawns That Came with the Set, but All of the Other Pieces are Different, as can Be Seen From the Photos. Each Set of Pieces Come in a Nice Storage Box that Has Gold Writing on Each & Says "The Lord of the Rings" & the Name of Each Movie. Each Piece Has a Slot it Fits in & the Box is Padded with Styrofoam Packing. All of the Figures are : Heros & Villains, Hobbits & Orcs, Wizards & Nazgul, the Brave and the Wicked! This Chess Set was Issued by The Noble Collection and Licensed by New Line Cinema. The Chess Set is Said to Be One of the Most Stunning Works of Art Ever Created by The Noble Collection. It also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from The Noble Collection. Each of the Chess Pieces are in Mint Condition and Have Rarely Been Taken out of the Storage Boxes. The Board is also in Mint Condition. This Would be A Very Beautiful Set to Display or to Play. All in all, this Chess Set would be An Excellent, Unique Addition to Any Collection or to Use for Playing Chess. I will be Happy to Answer Any Questions or Provide Additional Pictures Upon Request!
