Still housed as found in a period dovetailed slide top box from the pharmaceutical company POWERS & WEIGHTMAN, Philadelphia, this nice old chess set remains in fine condition and is offered here untouched just as it came from a country Maine attic. Illustrated here with a US quarter for size comparison, the game pieces are of turned white birch with the black pieces of the same material, stained. A staple of the 19th century era turning mills here in Maine as they produced clothespins, spools, dowels and all manner of goods from this tight grain North Woods white birch. An extra nice period chess set, complete and ready to set in any Civil War era grouping. The identification to J. H. Griffin will be of special interest as the set came out of a Freeport, Maine where James H. Griffin of the 30th Maine Infantry lived. The only Maine J. H. Griffin serving in the Civil War, Griffin enlisted and was mustered in on December 18, 1863 as a Private of Co. B 30th Maine Vols. He mustered out in Savannah, Georgia on August 20, 1865. Not as tight a provenance as is most desirable but a probable connection to a good, hard fought, Maine regiment worthy of passing along to be preserved with this nice chess set. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
