American War of Independence Chess Set in resin/crushed marble by Mascott Chess. This magnificent chess set marks events leading up to the birth of our country. The AMERICAN side has Gen. George Washington as the king, Betsy Ross as the queen, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson as the bishops, Gen. The rooks are Independence Hall, and privates of the Third New Jersey Regiment (the "Jersey Blues") represent the pawns. The BRITISH side has King George III as king, Queen Charlotte as queen, the bishops are Frederick Lord North (Prime Minister) and Gen. Charles Earl Cornwallis and Benedict Arnold. The rooks are the Tower of London and the pawns are of the Grenadier Company of the Coldstream Guards.

Note that Benedict Arnold, the traitor, appears on both the British and American sides! This is a rare and very high quality set, hard to find hand-painted in such beautiful detail. All pieces are in "as new" condition. The set has not been played with, only displayed behind glass. The king is 7 tall.

Each piece is made from a composition of crushed marble and alabaster which is then hand painted in the correct dress of the time. The pieces are very solid and weighted-- the king is 295 grams in weight. The wooden board is 27" x 27" square, almost 2 thick, and is beautifully hand made, sized to match the pieces. The set was produced in 1998 by Mascott Chess. The item "American War of Independence Chess Set Hand Painted Mascott Chess Large 7 King" is in sale since Saturday, February 20, 2021.
