    Ceramic Chess Set

    An older couple gave this to me as they are moving.
    If anyone is interested, let me know.
    The board will not go with the set as it is, IMO, too heavy to ship.

    I have the exact same ceramic set, just painted different before it was fired. A favorite Aunt of mine who was into ceramics made it at least 50 years ago. I treasure it because she is no longer with us.

    I have the exact same set I made when I was in tech school back in the USAF in 1975. Never got to fire the last five pieces. Are those fired or just painted?

    I understand why you want to sell it. A person has to think to play that game. I can play it, just never any good at it and can't ever remember ever winning a game of it. Playing at least 10 moves ahead makes my head hurt.

    Curious as to what the board weighs that you consider it “too heavy to ship”? USPS Priority will ship up to 70lbs, most times for flat rate-just be up front with the cost to the buyer and agree & pay. I’ve maxed out those flat rate boxes with “heavy metals”, line them with other sheets of cardboard, double or triple up the boxes and use packing tape as structural support and you should have no issues with shipping.

    I threw the board away already. It was made out of 3/4" particle board and ceramic tile. It was heavy, warped and in really bad shape.
