Israel  (Asia)

Israel. This set is made in the manner of Yemenite silver wire design, probably in the second half of the 20th century. Maybe a bit earlier. One side is silver coloured, the other one is gold coloured. Most chessmen are marked on the bottom "Made in Israel" and "925" (this means pure silver), a few marked "Sterling" and a couple unmarked. It is not the best example of its kind, but these sets are rare.
