Semenov Chess Set. An unusual wood chess set from Semenov circa late 1980's. The pawns are matryoshkas on a pedestal. The major pieces were made uniquely for the set. Each piece is hand made and painted with the traditional colors of red and black. Wood board is 13" x 6½" x 2" (13" x 13" open) with a hook latch. The pieces nestle carefully inside of the box. The tallest piece is 4" and the smallest is 2½". In about fine condition (we touched up some of the pieces with black and red paint and clear lacquer). A nice gift for the matryoshka collector who also plays chess. 1 set only.
