Mid-century Space Age Chess Set. Pieces made of Walnut and Maple in Mahogany. When this set was designed, Elliott worked for Disney as an animator. This was in the midst of the space race to put a man on the moon. The pieces all have space related names – space station, satellite, radar, etc. Elliott, at some point moved to Italy to design house hold furnishings. With the new interest in chess inspired by the Queens Gambit, I thought it time to part with this set. This is an unusual and sought after set, recently used as a prop in the first episode of Tales From the Loop. This is the deluxe set, housed in a fitted mahogany case. The dark wood pieces are walnut, the light wood are maple. The King (space station)is 4 ¼ tall, and the pawns (rockets) are 2. The set was made in Italy by Anri. The original brochure is included. The set includes a 17 ” X 17 ” Spanish made mahogany chess board that shows some wear on the under side. The pieces and case are in pristine condition! As close to new old stock as you will find.
