Description


This exceptional vintage cast sterling silver chess set is comprised of 32 chess pieces/chessmen: 2 Kings, 2 Queens, 4 Rooks/Castles, 4 Bishops, 4 Knights and 16 Pawns.


The plain sterling silver chessmen are identified as 'white' and the 'black' pieces retain the original gilding; it is standard practice with cosmetically altered chess sets to still refer to players as 'White' and 'Black'.

Each piece has a textured finish and baize to the underside.
