This large Staunton style chess set and box dates to around 1950 based on local info it came to U. The Staunton Chess Men were individually made by Petrushkin Games of England. The white chess set pieces appear to be made from boxwood and the ebonized black shows red under the finish which I believe is mahogany. All are in the signed original box (12" X 8 1/2" X 6 1/2 deep) made from strong heavy cardboard with linen finish similar to a hardback book.
There is wear on the box as can be seen in the photos but still very solid with tapered liner on inside. The box has Staunton and the logo and name "Petrushkin Games" 6 (size of king)Chess Pieces" on the end in a below "Staunton Chess Pieces. The chess set is comprised of 32 pieces.Each piece has green felt on the base. Not sure if all pieces are weighted major pieces have recess under felt can't feel recess under pawn felt. The king measures just over 6" (15.5 cm) tall with 1 7/8" (5 cm) base and weighs 2.3 oz. (64g), the knight is 4 1/2" (11.5 cm) tall with 1 3/4" (4.5 cm) base and weighs 3.3 oz. Questions welcome, thanks for looking.
