Where is this chess set from?

I ran across this chess set recently and would really like to track down where it's from. There were no other identifying marks or labels that I could see.

This picture is the very closest example of a medieval-style polystone set I could find, compared to the photo you posted. Apparently, it is available on Hayneedle.

Hope this helps!

This eBay listing looks similar:

Looks like the Hayneedle link above goes to main page; try this link

There's also a similar style through Amazon (on preview looks like eBay one above)

Unfortunately, going by the king and ponies, they don't look like the exact set you're looking for.

(Thank you for including the more precise link to the Hayneedle site, lesser weasel! I should have thought to do so, mea culpa. ) :)

If you also want checkers and a fancy board with storage, try this.

Thanks Amor Bellator, mu, and lesser weasel! While not the exact set, they look darn close and give me a manufacturer to start with. Thanks much!
