    nullfound these pics on my computer directory yesterday. Terrible photography, but gives you an idea of my workspace at home. I have a new phone, perhaps i can take some better pics later.

    I bought the pieces in North Bay back about 20 years ago. I have no idea what wood the black pieces are. Maybe Sheesham, maybe Blood Rosewood, maybe Rose Bloodwood, mayb Bud the Spudwood...

    I do like the Lardy-esque bishops. I also like the way it looks on this somewhat crowded board, although this one is just a smidgeon tight even for me. (Which is far too crowded for many other people) I was given this folding board together with a set of really tiny wooden pieces about 30, 35 years ago, If anything, I would get a new folding wood board just a bit larger to handle the pieces.

    The box originally held a tempered glass drinking flask. I gave that to my wife and kept the box. I took the latch from another box. Like a lot of things these days, it's made to look pretty rather than be functional.

    Looks like a great little set for analysis verylate.

    Very nice.  I have to say, I've been to North Bay a number of times over the years and never thought to go looking for a chess set.  Is (was) there a hobby store there?

    Not at a chess or hobby shop, but at one of the North Bay International tournaments in the late 90s. The vendors had a variety of really nice sets and boards. I had a beat-up, chipped, scratched and much abused plastic set from high school, I felt it was time to get something new. With hindsight, I wish I had also sprung for one of the swank boards as well. maybe when I'm retired

    Looks like a Lardy set to me, verylate.
