Brass & Wood Persian Staunton Chess Pieces
These imported Italian chess pieces are some of the most unique and impressive of our staunton collection.
The metal parts of the set are solid brass and when you hold the pieces in your hand, you can feel it! Between the base and top of the pieces is a step with genuine hardwood, two contrasting looks that go brilliantly together.
The pieces comes in a flip top box with individual chess piece inserts in a styrofoam sheet. It is a great way to keep them protected, although they can also go in one of our humidor style chess boxes.
These chess pieces are similar in design to the Persian stye. Manufacturered in Italy Chess Set Details:
