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.
Chicago - A city famed for its unique mix of architectural styles provides the setting for this edition, featuring a selection of iconic 20th Century buildings.

Willis Tower and the John Hancock Centre take centre stage on the board as the King and Queen.
