Mascott Chess - Hand Painted American Civil War Chess Set (ST2008)
With the poster child of Abraham Lincoln, here's the flagship of theme hand painted chess sets - what chess sets with some historical occurance were made for - the American Civil war. Embedded in the US psychology are characters such as Abe Lincoln and Mary Tod Lincoln, Ulysees Grant, William T Sherman, Jefferson Davis, Verina Howell Davis, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and all the brave infantry men with their capitols of Richmond and Washington. This is the pre-eminent of theme chess sets, the example for others to follow. The detail and quality of this chess set is nothing short of extraordinairy and a fitting testament to the awful period for America of the civil war.
