32 pc German Sterling Silver & Gilt Chess Set. Intricately detailed pieces with handcarved bone faces and hands, gemstones, sterling and gilt details. Gorgeous quality, solid silver set. Made By The Crafstmen Silversmiths Of Hannau, Germany For Garrard The Crown Jewelers. Measures Approx. King: (largest piece) 7.50" height, base 2.375" diameter. Pawn (smallest piece): 5.50"; height, base 2", diameter. There were a limited number of these sets made in the 20th Century. 1 set for the Hunt Family In Dallas, another for David Orgell on Rodeo Drive, and apparently 1 was also made for I Freeman Son. This really is a spectacular set. There are some minor wear and damages, but overall a fantastic, complete set. The identical chess set, but without English hallmarks, was sold with a chess board for $62,500 at Sotheby's in New York on 15th April 2011.
