This is a very unique chess set made with a space age mind before the space age started. Arthur Elliott intricately designed each piece consistent with a Mid-Century Modern, somewhat "space age" sleek design. The pieces are each hand carved out of solid woods. This set design was retired in 1982.Each chess piece has felt bottom. Carved chess pieces are made of kiln-dried black walnut and white maple. King 4" with a base of 1 1/16". Pawn 1 7/8" with a base of 9/16". Board 14 1/4" x 14 1/4" with squares 1 3/4. Overall condition of chessmen and board is good. A couple of minor spots on board and chessmen as noted in 9th picture. Anri stickers on bottom of darker Brown King. I inherited a large chess set collection and most were used for display in glass curio cabinets or stored.
