HAND-CAST IN SOLID BRONZE
Each piece is hand-cast in solid bronze. The contrasting finish of the polished light side against the opposing dark, patinated chessmen creates a striking collection of pieces.
A bronze finish is used for the lighter pieces and a patination oil is used to create the darker pieces. The reassuring weight of each piece makes this an extremely tactile chess set and the felt bases lend a softness of touch and beautiful finish to each piece.
Each of our sets come in a luxury presentation box, which contains your set, playing board as well as a certificate of authenticity.
The pieces are housed in precision cut foam to ensure they travel well and be stored safely between games.
The pawns are played by the famous Painted Lady houses, St. Mary’s Cathedral plays the Rook, with Columbus Tower playing the Knight. Coit Tower is cast as the Bishop, with the Iconic Transamerica Pyramid playing the most powerful piece on the board, the Queen. The King is played by the recently completed Salesforce Tower.
Each set comes complete with a hand screen-printed wooden city map or Italian Carrara marble playing board and in a luxury presentation box.
