Man Ray

remarkable and prized

Phildadelphia-born, Brooklyn- raised, Dada-Surrealist artist Man Ray created sets from 1920 till his passing in 1976.

Very few of these original sets are still available for purchase and when they are, they command prices at auctions of tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Man Ray is hailed as one of 20th century's most innovative artists. Son of a Russian immigrant tailor, Man Ray's artwork was far ahead of its time so he lived modestly his whole life. His vision was to design a simple straightforward, but modern and affordable chess set.

The knight piece is a violin scroll and is in fact carved by a violin maker in Italy.

Man Ray's original design was the first modern set comprised of all abstract geometric forms. The sets found here are copied perfectly by expert craftsmen from both Germany and Italy. These pieces, that will reintroduce you to the game of chess, each have a special association.

the ideal chess board

for your best play

The flex pad chessboard offers even more convenience than most roll-up vinyl chess boards in that it lays flat every time and can be both rolled-up and folded. The smooth playing surface interacts well with club style or any felt based pieces. Regulation size, the board is flexible for personal, club, or school use. Pair it with any standard size club or collectable chess pieces and you are in the game fast.

Because it's a mere 1/16 inch thick, it's easy to store roll-up style in a bag with loop or an enclosed carrying case. Roll it up with the squares facing outwards for best results.

These boards stay flat when you unroll them. Much better than vinyl. More durable as well.


These chess sets were made in the late 1970's and were recently found and made available for sale. About 25 sets exist now and most have the original sleeve with Geppetto label on it.

Frances' father started his company Geppetto Industries around 1970 when she was a very young girl. He loved chess and had been Nevada State chess champion when he decided to make chess boards and then also the pieces.

Frances doesn't know how many chess sets were made or sold, but her father says that 200 of his best were burned up in the Oakland Hills fire of 1991 which also burned their house down.

Chess House is enabling Frances to find new homes for the remaining sets her father made.
