A great looking and very rare set. A couple of the pieces are broken or missing, but essentially complete for such a rare item with most of the 32 pieces present and complete.The few with damage could be repaired or replaced. THIS SET ALSO HAS THE GEAT WOODEN DOVE-TAILED WOODEN STORAGE BOX as shown. Chess was a popular game among officers, but Civil War chess sets are very rarely found today. A very nice looking, early set, with nice proportions. Pieces are nicely formed and made and have a great look. The king measures about 3. " high and the pawns measure about 1 1/2" high.
The thin wooden box has a nice sliding cover and measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" x 2 1/4 high. A very rare and great looking camp officer's item for display with any Civil War display or collection.
