Galaith early plastic chess set 1930’s

This scarce set with a 7cms king origin unknown was purchased from Dermot Rochford via his impressive website in the early 2000’s, and I have yet to see any set that resembles this one. If I had to hazard a guess as to where it was made either France or Germany comes to mind.

Very well finished without even a hint of seam join, this set came with its original box minus its lid.

Chess Antiques online is where the Rochfords offer sets for sale (over the years I have purchased 5 sets from the Rochfords) –
