Chinese molded chess set, hand painted, sides are green and orange, kings are 4”. King and queen are foo dogs, the king has his paw on a globe (the world), the queen has her paw on a small dog (family). Bishops, knights and pawns are pretty exact representations of traditional Chinese/Japanese gods, and the rooks are temples. Housed in a wood case board. Bought this set in the late ‘70s, haven’t seen it in other collections.
