Jacques Adnet Hand-Stitched Black and Cognac Leather Chess Board and Set

About the Item

This stunning and rare original chess board and set of thirty-two game pieces were designed by French designer Jacques Adnet (1901-1984) in the 1950s. The bi-color leather board displays thirty-two pieces. Each piece has Adnet's signature black and cognac contrast hand-stitched leather on an aluminum base. The class of a noble material such as cast aluminum perfectly matches the timeless beauty of genuine leather, and this game of chess set doesn't go unnoticed whenever displayed. All pieces are in their original vintage condition, with some minor wear on the leather playing board and some on the game pieces expected from previous use. This does not significantly affect the overall appearance. Please check the close-up. Measurements: Board: 15.75 in wide (40 cm) x 15.75 in deep (40 cm). Pawn: 1.38 in diameter (3.5 cm) x 2.57 in high (6.5 cm). Rook: 1.38 in diameter (3.5 cm) x 3.94 in high (10 cm). Knight: 1.38 in diameter (3.5 cm) x 3.13 in high (8 cm). Bishop: 1.57 in diameter (4 cm) x 3.94 in high (10 cm). Queen: 1.57 in diameter (4 cm) x 5.13 in high (13 cm). King: 1.57 in diameter (4 cm) x 5.50 in high (14 cm). Note measurements in the item detail are for the board alone.
