Paul Berg sent me this note to share with the community and ask for help. It appears that he is in Australia from his email address but I haven't confirmed that yet. I am helping him get pictures uploaded here as well.

Hi There “Tolkien” Friends.
In about 1976 I purchased my “Tolkien” Chess set, in an Art Gallery. The Chess Set was inspired by Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. It was Designed and Executed between January 1974 and February 1975 by Andrew Thomson.

The Pieces are:
Aragorn - White King
Eowyn - White Queen
Gandalf - White Bishop
Treebeard - White Rook
Frodo - White Pawn
Sauron - Black King
Shelob - Black Queen
Ringwraith - Black Bishop
Nazgul’s Steed - Black Knight
Orc - Black Pawn

As I am about to sell my home and need to move into smaller quarters, I am considering selling this set. The pieces and the handcrafted leather board are in a great condition and shows very little use. The board is set in a solid Blackwood table and is 73cmx114cm and 37 cm high. I would appreciate any feedback you may be able to offer.

Regards. Paul berg

Why is Eowyn the white queen? Shouldn't that be Arwen? Cool set, though.
