Vintage Handcrafted Wooden Chess Set
- Source: eBay
This is a nicely handcrafted vintage wooden chess set in the original box with the maker's card included. The chess pieces are carved from pine wood; one set is natural and the other has a dark stain. The chess pieces are in excellent condition and look virtually unused. The pawns measure 2 3/8" high and the king measures 3.75" high. The chess pieces are in the original heavy, solid oak box, which is beveled on the top and is lined with green felt and has built-in elastics to hold the chess pieces in place. The top lid does have a split along the natural seam. The box measures about 18" by 8.5" by 4.5". The chess pieces were made by Don Mackay at The Carpenters Bench in Batavia, Ohio.
