I've never seen another one! The style is similar to Hermann Ohme sets, but this is also much taller with 4 1/8 kings!Pictured here on 2.25 squares (board not included). Made of wood in Italy. At least 50 years old. The light pieces are lacquered and have a beautiful honey patina. The dark pieces are a very deep warm reddish purplish. One of the dark bishops has some chipping (see photos), but this could certainly be touched up. It looks to me like some paint just scraped off over the years but the piece itself is still intact. One thing to note is that the pieces all have tiny holes on the tops, presumably from the lathe. A bit unusual so worth mentioning.
