This chess set was commissioned by my Mother in the late 40's. the pieces are made from old molds she found in a small shop somewhere in France and were 100+ years old at the time. The pieces are solid Pewter and Brass and they were the first pieces made from the molds by the shop owners accounting. The board was custom make with inlaid wood and the scroll work appears to have been hand craved. No marking on either the pieces or board and as far as I know this is a unique, one of a kind set.
