I have had the main moulds refurbished 3 years ago and we are still looking for the other moulds for the other Kings and Queens plus ‘The Tom Fool’ which was made for the French market. The reason was to create sets of different colours for my own collection and possibly sell some at the same time.
The special colours, I am having made 1 or 2 sets in, unless someone orders one.
The colours I now have are:
Light Blue v White, Black, Lilac, Sage Green, Light Brown and Dark Brown.
Also 2 Colour:
White on Light Blue Base v Light Blue on White Base and Black on White Base v White on Black Base.
If anyone has been to the factory and actually seen the Jasper pieces before curing -- They were at least 10-15% larger than the final item and I took photos showing some of the pieces being cast in separate parts.
People have said to me that the current sets I am having made by Wedgwood at Barlaston in England, are not as clear and detailed as the older sets. Well – sorry to disapoint you, some of the older ones are even worse, with casting marks as well.
Some stock at the factory, waiting for the other pieces to be made to make up the complete set.
If anyone is interested on buying a set please contact either Elizabeth Gann or Frank Cameratta in USA or Garrick Coleman in England.
I will also sell them direct with a special discount to CCI Members and even exchange a set for old pieces of Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Minton etc.
Arnold Machin Chess Set designed and made in 1950’s
