Vintage Carved Wooden Chess Set In Box, Similar To Anri?:
Vintage carved wooden painted chess set. I can't find a signature on it anywhere, and it just comes in a blue box with a label on the side that reads "Figuren en Kartonbox 530.-" (German? Austrian? Swiss?). It looks similar to Anri chess sets that I have seen but the style is just a little different. Figures are medieval-looking...I have provided a few sample pictures to illustrate some of the detail in this set. 2 of the pawns have come off their bases - 1 is pictured here - but that can be easily fixed with some wood glue. White grouping has silver detail, while the dark grouping has gold. Definitely some dust and wear commensurate with age (dark group has darkened with time), but still a very noble-looking set! King is just over 4 inches tall. Not sure how old - my grandparents had it as long as I can remember, back into the late 70s, and I am fairly certain they picked it up in Europe. As is, as with all vintage items. :) Thanks for looking!
