Larger plastic quality chess set from Germany by Bayerwald. These are full plastic pieces with weights and velt bottom. They feel good while playing and are perfect to play in places you would not take your expensive pieces to play like in the yard or on holiday. The king measures 9 cm or 3 3/4 inches high. The larger bases are 3,5 cm or 1 3/8 inch in diameter. I have 2 identical sets with minimal signs of use and age. One box in black and one box in red. Let me know if you have a preference.
