Wooden Chess Set 11Inlaid Walnut & Maple Board32 Weighted & Felted Wood Pieces. I put this custom assembled set together about five years ago. The pieces, the board and the storage box came from different sources. All three are wooden (except for the brass hinges on the box, which work great). The condition is pre-owned and all three components are near-mint with no damage, stains or other issues.They fit well on the board's 1.13 squares. All are in mint condition. All are weighted with magnets so they can be used to stick on a steel screen-printed board (see the photo where the bottoms of the pieces stick together). All are felted with brown felt. The dark pieces were probably stained walnut color and all were finished with clear coating. One white pawn has a tiny chip on the bottom but the finish covers it, so it was made that way. If I remember correctly they were hand-made in India. The Board : This board was made by Tomokazu (makers of quality wooden items like cutting boards). The wood is a single piece of walnut (no plywood). The maple and walnut wood inlay is well done. There is very light wear to the surface, which is difficult to see. The size is 11" by 11". Each square is 1.13. It is marked with the maker's label on the back side (see photo).
The Storage Box : This walnut wood box was intended to hold tea bags hence the gold embossed tree logo and the attribution: "Southern Live Tea Company". It is 6" long by 3.25" wide by 3.5 tall. I have not modified it. The brass hinges work great. The item "Wooden Chess Set11Inlaid Walnut & Maple Board32 Weighted & Felted Wood Pieces" is in sale since Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
