^__^ Hi, I have the exact same set as you, and was wondering if you ever found out the value? Mine's been in my family for so long we don't even know how it came to be!!! Not that I want to part with it quite yet unless there's a proper offer one set A LOT like this one also made in 1979 is going for 2,000+ USD!!!eBay so I am hoping that this one is worth the same if not more!!! Here is a pic of mine!!!

I have the 1979 Tolkien Enterprise Chess set as well with all of the pieces and its board but mine has legs on the chess board.

I found a few pictures out there with chess boards like this without the legs but never with so I thought I'd share the knowledge.

(Not for sale) :p

That's a nice looking chess table! Out of curiosity (because I have never seen one of these before) - is there any indication on the board itself that it belongs with the set? The carved motif does not have any Tolkien specifics to it that I can see in the photo.
