Four Figure Chess Sets

For this continuing series on Top eBay Chess Items by Price, I like to feature items other than chess sets, but for this current episode there was absolutely nothing else to highlight. I even dove beneath my normal cutoff price of US $500 and found zilch. What to do? Chess sets it will be, but with a twist. Here are the top selling chess sets from the last three months of closed eBay auctions.

From left to right, top to bottom, with final selling price and auction title:-

  • $6000 : Extraordinary, Fantastic, Murano Glass, Large, Italy, Jews/Catholics Chess Set
  • $5200 : Important Pewter, Gold & Silver Napoleonic Chess set
  • $3800 : Antique Chinese jade stone figural chess set hand carved Asian w case board 32 p
  • $2912 : Antique Jaques Staunton boxed chess set. Very rare pre1860 example.
  • $2800 : Rare Antique 1900's Chinese Ox Bone Chess Set Signed 6" Kings!
  • $2500 : New stunning CAS Iberia King Arthur Chess Set - Table and Base $3700+
  • $2500 : Vintage 1970's Pierre Cardin Chess set Eames mod modern panton mid century era
  • $2500 : Vintage old crow decanter chess set~full set of 32~ sealed~ in original boxes

When the price I list doesn't match the price shown in the screen snapshot, it is generally a 'best offer' price. There were nearly 50 chess sets during the three month period that sold for $1000 or more.
