This is the ultimate Drueke chess set, virtually flawless. According to the Drueke catalogue, which referred it as The Imperial, No.38 Chessmen was part of their Luxury Line series. The nicely balanced, heavily weighted pieces are made of cycolac, a plastic trademarked by the Borg-Warner Corp. The pieces show no wear, and the original felt is intact on all pieces.
The label on the front of the box is complete and intact. The beveled walnut box, which has sliding top lids--one for the ivory pieces and another for the brown pieces--measures 10.5 x 8.5 x 3.5 inches. This is a magnificent set to play and to admire. The item "Drueke Five-Inch King, No.
