The walnut wood is fine and artfully turned, taking full advantage of the beautiful grain striations. The adjustable top screw on the pepper mill is made of brass.
This set is in mint condition, It was never used and still in the original box.
I believe this set is known as the "Chess Set" because of it's resemblance to chess pieces.
The little gold tag that is still attached is a 10 year guarantee. It also states that it is "specially constructed steel grinding gears".
The box has a cute 1950's to early 60's graphic print, and is in pretty good condition. The affixed sticker says, "Catalina WOODENWARES OF CALIFORNIA Wooden Pepper mill & Salt shaker with adjustable gear.
This is truly special Eames Era find in super fine minty condition.
11" tall by 2 1/2" wide at the base
Sorry for the glare that appears as white spots on the wood. The wood is in perfect condition.
