Anri Montsalvat - mini version, circa 1960

Anri Montsalvat Chess Set with the original box & a Mahogany Chess board with brass balls.
According to

"The most opulent wooden chess set carved in the last 50 years, the imposing Montsalvat in polychrome version takes its name from the Parsifal legend. The finely handcarved pieces from alpine maple are handpainted and gilded, the bases are heavily loaded and the pieces are felted and casketed. The kings stand an imposing 139 mm - smaller versions on piedestals were also made - as well as a large version with a 10 " king!"

This one is the "small" version - king is 3.5", but still very impressive. Probably from the 1960s.
