This wonderful chess set was manufactured in 1972 by the Ice Company of Denver Colorado. The set is 100% complete and is in good condition. It is all original with the exception of the playing surface which we have had changed to wood and professionally hand-painted by an expert restorer. We have retained the original felt base which was worn and stained. Each chess piece is machine tooled and is a Mid-Century Modern work of art. The chess box is brushed aluminum with a blue Lucite sliding top. Each piece is cradled in its own compartment to prevent wear. On that note this chess set is 45 years old and exhibits age consistent with wear, mainly in the form of scratches on the chess pieces and box, though none so serious as to take away from the stunning beauty and originality of this incredible set. A true work of artistic beauty for chess collectors, aficionados and regular folk to while away the hours with friends and family.
