Cowboys & Indians Chess Set

Any chess players out there?
Would anyone know the maker of this 
Cowboys & Indians Chess Set? 


It's heavy and has side drawers
for storing the pieces.
As you can see it's very detailed.
There are no labels or markings.


It is a beautiful set and 
we just love it. 


It is not wood, plastic or pewter.


Just so many questions
and so few answers!

I wish I was smart enough to play chess. Thom must have been a more sophisticated enlisted man than I. LOL, then maybe you upgraded his intelligence! LOL
But it does sound neat!

Get a room!...it is a beauty of a set, in spite. Research, girl, you have the whole world at your fingertips. Have fun, researching the net, that is. There has to be a mark somewhere. It looks like the patina of copper.

Did you ever find out what it is?

I have the same set, but only the pieces not the board. Do you have any idea how much they're worth?

Hey there, anybody ever find out or would guess what this board is worth? I have the exact same board and it is very beautiful, I'm trying to sell it.

I have this set also, I have a couple of broken pieces. Would be interested in buying those pieces from anyone selling theirs or parting our pieces. My email address is mrezmonie@aol.com.

Hi everyone my uncle and aunt had the same chess set when I was a kid. It's from the mid 1980's. I'm pretty sure my uncle picked it up in Mexico or Arizona. I always thought it was awesome. If anyone is looking to sell a complete one with all the pieces in good condition feel free to email me at edgevf@aol.com I would be interested in it. I think it's made out of cast poly stone.

Hey, I have one of these sets, with different tiles. Does yours have holes where the piece holders slide out? And can you flip the board over?

Oh. to answer your question on the material. I think it is made from some type of sand glue compound. I know for sure the pieces were made in a mold. If you look at the edge of each piece, you can see a verticle line. it's called a parting line left over from the mold prosses.

I just picked up a near identical chess set at a yard sale and came online looking for info. The set is missing a cowboy's head but is in otherwise, good condition. If anyone has any info or interested in purchasing, contact me at ALK59@pitt.edu
