i,ve checked ebay auctions, amazon all chess stores google could come up with. but trying to identify non traditional staunton style chess pieces is difficult. there made out of some type of wood their light for traditional wood. their laquered over natural wood for white and black painted and laquered for black. i suspect their india asain or oriental decent. because of the motifies and design and their all adorned with plastic pieces like kings cross queens crown and knobs on top of pawns etc.. i realize without pics identification is impossible. i just hate to post since this is chess computer forum. i just like to collect unique and unusual chess sets that are non traditional style. Besides collecting chess computer.James
