16" Red and Botticino Marble Chess Board
16" Red and Boticino Marble Chess BoardThese hand-made marble chess boards are ideal for chess enthusiasts that want something unique for their smaller traditional staunton or theme chess pieces. The style is traditional with two marble colors, and each board is hand carved, so no two sets are ever exactly alike. There are a lot of variations in the stone and often have a weathered, rustic appearence. Because of the variation, these boards are not best for perfectionists. These marble sets should be left out on display when possible!
Red Marble ranges from dark red to bright orange and often has more variation than any other color. Due to the unusual composition of some of these veins, sometimes there will be more veins than in other colors.
Boticino Marble is a creamy, off-white color that provides a good contrast for many marble sets. It has little variation.
