It was carved to honor Frederick II of Prussia, remembered in history as "Frederick the Great" for military conquests.
 This set lay undiscovered in the Allan Troy estate. It was purchased in 1975 and was only opened recently. We alas do n...ot know the woods used. The king is 4 5/8 inches tall and 1 5/8 inches wide at the base. The pieces are weighted. The pieces are also hand-painted!
