here is a recent fresh meat purchase, from by a huge distance the best , and most efficent auction house i have ever dealt with.
a similar set is very well described on e bay as being listed the art of chess by coleen schafroth p 150-151thanks for that info mr mortimer.
Klittich , for value service, description packing and shipment speed this auction house puts many british institutions to shame as this purchase was German efficency at its best . boy oh boy do they deserve their commission. some months ago i won a part lot of chess pieces in a box from a southern england auction house , and it took two weeks to get the item , as sending a donkey up to scotland might have been faster !!11!!!!!!!!!!! klittich took 5 days at a far lower cost SALE ROOM TAKE NOTE THESE INSTITUTIONS CAN DO ALOT BETTER TO EARN THEIR COMISSION!!!!
One side stained green, the other is white (opaque). Produced in the second half of the 20th century. King 8 cm high; pawn 6,5 cm. Chessboard 41,5 x 41,5 cm. Complete glass chess set in a compact form. With minor chips and small damages.
I NEEDED A PAIR OF SPECSAVER GLASSES TO SPOT THE INVISIBLE DAMAGES , AND THE CASE WITH A GOOD QUALITY MATT VINYL TYPE COVERING WAS PRISTINE
I HAD SEEN SIMILAR SETS IN THE MID 2000’S AND FANCIED GETTING ONE . THE EXCELLENT BOARD SIZE GIVE THE PIECES SPACE TO ” breathe “, and thus one can happily play away my observant wife noticed the sliding board comes out of the case a very neat construction .getting a glass figural set was a distant bucket list item , as the river styx boatman draws closer the chunky 8 cms king is quite weighty and the pieces have a three dimensional effect when you look under the well cast pieces, a fantastic item of czech manufacture
this is an impressive set
