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 leather 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 Haussmann Building sets the scene as the pawns, the Louvre makes for a striking rook, the Pompidou becomes an extraordinary knight, the Arc de Triomphe is a beautiful bishop, the Sacre Coeur takes its rightful place as the queen, whilst no other than the grandeur of the Eiffel Tower would suit the role of king.
Each set comes complete with a hand screen-printed wooden city map or Italian Carrara marble playing board and in a luxury presentation box.
