WOW! What a find! I was lucky enough to win this item at a local estate sale and since I already have three Chess Sets that mostly collect dust, I am selling this one here with .

KING ARTHUR CHESS SET

Genuine Reproductions of

HAND CARVED MASTER PIECES

Originals by CHARLES A. BENDEKGEY

One Complete Set, No. 1007

Includes Chess Board

Wm. F. Drueke & Sons, Inc.

Grand Rapids Michigan

As the photos show, this is a beautiful King Arthur Chess Set and is complete with the game board and comes in it’s original box. It is made by the Wm. F. Drueke & Sons, Inc. Company of Grand Rapids Michigan. I did a little research online and found this company operated through most of the 20th century and continues to operate today, although it was bought out in the 1990’s. As such, I am having a difficult time dating the game. From the style of the box and pieces, I could believe this was made in the 20’s or 30’s and the Chess pieces could quite possibly be Bakelite®. On the other hand, the pieces could be just fancy swirled plastic, in which case I would date this game from the 1960’s.

As the photos show, all of the pieces are there and are in “LIKE NEW” condition. LARGE pieces…the King is OVER 4” tall. Nice detail with a gold cross painted on the hood of each of the Bishops. It appears the faces are all hand painted in gold also . Paint and all of the pieces are in excellent condition with no chipping or cracks. The game set comes complete with the green and white board you see in the photos. The board is in excellent condition and doesn’t appear to have ever had the spline broken by being over-bent. There is one white smudge on the back side of the board. I’m unsure what it is and I did nothing to try to clean it off. Finally, the box is included and makes a nice display in itself. As the photos show, the box does have some damaged edges. The box will arrive to you packed carefully but unrepaired as I do not want to do anything to decrease the value of the game set.

offer early and offer often as I have NEVER seen a similar board listed on , nor do I expect to again. This would be a beautiful addition to any vintage game collection or even if you want a nice, well balanced set to play with your friends.

SHIPPING:

Shipping charges for items shipped by weight, are ALWAYS calculated using the /Paypal shipping calculator and based on ACTUAL shipping cost the post office charges. I usually ship parcel post as it is the cheapest and usually arrives just as quick but sometimes I offer the priority option as there are cases when that method is only a few cents more. With over 1000 items shipped I’ve never had a problem with my packing or damage from the post office so I do not offer insurance on most items. The shipping cost you see on my listings is based on the actual weight of the item when it was listed in addition to 0 to 2 pounds to allow for the weight of the box and packing materials. I do NOT specifically add handling fees for bubble wrap, packing materials, boxes, tape etc. I also will print the actual shipping cost on your address label. As the final weight is unknown to me until the actual item is packed but was set based on estimated packaging weights, you may discover a few cents difference in what you paid and what the actual cost ended up as. Sometimes I lose a little money and sometimes I get a little more than it should have been. In the event you EVER discover the difference is more than $2.00, please contact me and I will refund DOUBLE the difference.

Terms:

Item to be paid for within 7 days of listing end. Payment may be made by Paypal. Return item within 30 days for a full refund of your purchase price, (excluding shipping), if unhappy for any reason.
