As suggested, I have reworded my question. Hope this is more appropriate.

Picture of the King Picture of the Knight

Many years ago (circa 1988/89) I had commissioned and made a chess set of key characters from the American Independence (American, French and British figures).

This is a one-off (the casts were broken after use) and is hand crafted/painted, made from solid pewter.

I have a data sheet for the set (albeit photocopy quality) detailing the pieces. This set has never been used so the condition is mint.

I was collecting sets for quite a few years and did intend to display this one but never got round to it.

What I am after is advice from the forum as to what to do? I have stopped playing and collecting a long while ago. It's not that I am not a fan of chess but lack a regular playing partner and work consumes so much of my time (particularly when travelling), I can never seem to get the time to even set them on display on the few boards I have.

Sensible comments appreciated.


p.s. for information/interest I have uploaded pictures of the set I have described in this post

  • I don't think this question is on-topic here, but I would suggest getting in touch with an antiques dealer for any older sets.

  • Also, you can sell on Amazon.
