An ode to the modern masterpieces within the city. Terraced houses play the perfect pawns, Big Ben makes for a regal rook, the London Eye is cast as the knight, 30 St Mary Axe steps into the role of the bishop perfectly, whilst the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the queen. When it comes to the Big Smoke, the stature and significance of Canary Wharf is the only building that can take on the role for king, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.
Selected to create beautiful and unique objects for both the chess player and design enthusiast alike. Each individual piece is hand-cast in Stainless Steel, all in all giving a timeless weight to the pieces and a unique architectural aesthetic.
Each set comes complete with a hand screen-printed wooden map or Italian Carrara Marble playing board and presentation box.
Available in a range of different edits: the Acrylic Edition, the New York City vs London Special Edition, the Stainless Steel Edition and the Luxury Bronze Edition, pitting the Big Smoke against another of the architectural greats in our collection.
Looks and feels very stylish with a good weight to the pieces very happy with purchase.
Great for playing and as a centre piece. The pieces are a good weight and hold steady. The only small downfall is the top of some of the buildings are very narrow and one came with a very small dint in. However, saying that it's great!
Lovely gift. Beautifully packaged and rapid delivery.
Will make a stunning display even when not used as a chess set.
Excellent customer service and the actual chess set and board are fantastic, highly recommend
This set is such a good quality, looks amazing in person plus it�s easy to play with. I was afraid it would be more of a show set but it works as a playable board and doesn�t get confusing after a couple of games. 5 Stars I�m going to end up buying another I know it __
This was expensive but was a quality product in a luxury box. Achieved the desired response from the recipients.
The pieces have a nice weight to them and feel very solid. It so nice looking we�ve left it out of the box.
This is a piece of art and my son (6) who is crazy about chess just spent his whole Christmas day playing chess with it. As soon as he opened this present he was no longer interested in any other presents. This is an excellent gift for anyone interested in chess! Thank you!
