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.
Pawns are terraced houses, Big Ben is the Rook, with the London Eye playing the Knight. 30 St Mary Axe is cast as the Bishop, and the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the Queen. No other building than Canary Wharf would be better suited to play the King, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.
Each numbered set comes complete with a hand screen-printed wooden city map or Italian Carrara marble playing board and in a luxury presentation box.
