Chess Set, Brutalist Style Handcrafted Steel Nail Silver and Bronze

About

Brutalist style handcrafted steel nail silver and bronze chess set. Each individual nail has a small crown shaped chop which possibly identifies the maker. Each King, Queen and bishop is clothed in metal (for silver pieces) and brass (for gold pieces) mesh. Dozens of nails have been painstakingly soldered to create this truly stunning chess set. The maker, country of origin and date can only be speculated.
