Unknown Chess Set

Has anybody ever seen a chess set like this?  I think it is plastic and not bone.  However, it looks awesome.  Any info. would be great.  Maybe even appraisal value?

Thanks,

I know my dad bought in on a buying trip to France.  It looks to be very old.

Interesting, because I have been told by a reputable dealer that this is bone and from Ecuador with a value of 300- 400?  Its not made in china.  It is handmade.

After further inspection, the black squares represents several Ecuadorian monuments.  It actually gives the name of each monument.  I dont think its from China or Mexico.  I am still trying to find out more about this set if anybody see's this.  I also think that it is possible that it is made from vegetable ivory or the Tagua nut.

Thanks,
