    Trying to determine maker of this chess set- 2.75 inch kings- bone/antler? Not sure of material but have a great weighted feel, felt pads on bottom. The dark pieces range from black to brown with streaks- goat horn maybe?

      I think I got lucky in purchasing them- I got them along with a Drueke board- they guy said they belonged to his deceased grandfather who traveled the world a good bit. He also said he remembered playing them with him about 20-25 years back when he was a teenager. For no more space than what they take up I would not have sold them. He said the king is 3 & 3/8" tall and it's base is 1& 1/8" in diameter. The pawn is 1 & 3/8" tall and it's base is 7/8" according to his email but not according to my ruler. He made no mention of what material other than "wood chess pieces" Each has subtle differences so I think they are possibly hand turned and pieces of art- proud to own them.
