Chess Anyone?April 17th, 2012 in member junk
Collected salt and pepper shakers make an awesome chess set. The board is made of brown and white marble subway tiles cut in half for 3" squares. A couple of the pair of shakers have sentimental value the small set in white directly in front of the King and Queen are from my best friend's mother-in-law home. They are dated WWII time frame, and one even has an imperfect flaw, as it doesn't sit flat. It was fun hunting for just the right scale. Kings and Queens were all purchased separately, but match perfectly.
Funny thing...I don't even know how to play. I do remember watching my Dad teach my brothers how to play when I was very young.
