Aluminum Chess Set, 1970s


Striking design and excellent craftsmanship combine in this iconic chess set.  Brushed aluminum box is painted with blue chessboard on one side and features a sliding blue Lucite storage cover on the other. The machine tooled aluminum chess pieces are stored inside, each cradled in their own compartment. Manufactured in 1972 by the Ice Company of Denver Colorado.  This set is 45 years old and exhibits some scratches and general light wear from use.  The wood chessboard box-top has been repainted.
