A beautiful piece of chess history from the late 19th century! These chess pieces have been expertly crafted from iron, and then gilded, as done by the famous blacksmith E. G. Zimmermann from Hanau.

Chess pieces by E. G. Zimmermann are highly sought after by collectors and are included in very many leading books on special chess pieces.

    It might really stand in a museum. It reminds me of a tavern where many sets where used and this might be a result of a merge too. This and the small signs of wear and use are a plus to me. Thank you
