West Germany Carved Weighted Wood Chess Pieces Complete with Storage Box Vintage. Not sure where the West Germany stamp came from, but this set looks like an analysis set (king 3 or under) made by Lardy in the 1960s-70s. The white king in the set has the "Lardy Lean" caused by eccentric lathe work; a lot of Lardy sets have the lean, usually in the royal pieces. It's so common it's more feature than bug. Some imperfections, and small splits.
