Beautiful set !! Interesting how low the rooks stand compared to their value. 

Thanks, Ron. IMHO, they are stout enough to connote their value.

I'm so glad you posted this. I have a set like this from HoS  they labeled as, simply, the Liberty Series. Mine is red lacquer and natural. It's great to see the genuine article and how my reproduction compares. Thanks, Chuck! Your collection and photos are, as always, a joy to look at.

You're very welcome!

Nice set. Was Humphrey Bogart a chess player? 

Thanks! By all accounts, an excellent one.

I'm guessing it was Reshevsky giving the simul, not Bogart?

There's an excellent article about Bogart's chess here:

It mentions the Reshevsky simul

Great, classic set! 

Here's a link to download the extant Bogart games -->> https://1drv.ms/u/s!AgVhuW8u-GbEgjLC2HoBPZUQvKUU

I think these 4 are the only ones to survive but I could be wrong.
