Brass and Wood Staunton Chess Set, Tournament-size
This beautiful, imported Brass and Wood Staunton chess set is from the workshop of Italfama in Italy and distributed by Cardinal Industries. A classic Persian Staunton design blending metal and wood. The chessmen are brass and nickel-plated cast zinc with hardwood Columns. The pieces have a heavy feel, and each is cushioned atop a felt base pad.
This is a set of tournament-size chessmen with a 3-1/2″ tall king and a 1-1/4” diameter base. Also included is a natural and walnut-stained-oak chessboard measuring 20” overall with 1-7/8” squares. The chess set is housed in a graphic display box with a Styrofoam insert for the individual pieces and chessboard. The chessmen are as new. The display box shows wear, consistent with age and long-term shelf storage, but is fully serviceable. These sets were distributed by Cardinal Industries and produced in 1984.
