A 1968 chess set made from various disassembled parts from a lamp...428 parts in all!

"My dad, an inventor/designer (he invented the Tressy doll--the doll with hair that grows, the first adjustable television turntable and designed unusual wrought-iron modern furniture) designed a chess set in 1968 that was made out of 428 lamp parts. Each set was handmade (by my mother and grandmother in the basement of our house in the Bronx.) Over 250 copies were sold in the late sixties/early 70's to high end stores and collectors."
