    Cast Chess Set

    This is my favorite chess set design EVER.. So in case anyone else cares (i know it's just me)...This set is a reproduction of the 1961 Ganine Salon Edition Sculptured Gothic Chess Set (#1475) "Peter Ganine was the Sculpture of merit who designed the award winning Gothic Sculpted Chess Set (earlier versions were sold as Superba Masterpiece Chessmen). The Gothic and Superba chess sets came in two sizes with the Salon edition being the more common type, and the larger sized Tournament Edition being much rarer."This is definitely from the 1961 set because the queen's headdress is has a "V" shape. It can also be seen in several episodes of the original Star Trek series so that's kind of cool too... So yeah.. it's a pretty famous set..And I know... no one cares but me :)
