    I have one (a War of the Rings set, 15th edition) but I am not thinking of selling it.

    I'm interested to find out anything about Anthony Studios and Graeme Anthony though. Is he still producing chess sets?

    Cool. I was trying to track him down a year or two ago to see if he was still making chess sets but I couldn't find him on the web. Now just searching by the name brings up his website as one of the top matches.

    The Hobbit set looks nice and I particularly like the individuality given to the pawns. In my set all the light pawns are the same (hobbits) and the dark pawns comprise seven orcs and Smeagol, which I always thought was a nice touch.

    I have always been impressed by these fine pewter chess sets.
    Richard II, Henry VIII, One Ring, Medieval, Romans v Ancient Britain’s and War of the Rings are all in stock. Less 30% off all products (books less 40%!) in our semi-retirement sale.

    Post War of the Rings Chess Set and Board

    Hi, I have a MINT condition War of the Rings Chess Set by Graeme Anthony, circa 1990, Edition 18 Number 55, board with copper inlays and ornate corner detail. These pieces have been wrapped in bubble wrap, stored in their original wooden box for over 20 years, hence mint condition! The board is in immaculate condition. Please contact me if you would like any further information - Melbourne Victoria. Thank you. Cheers
