3 1/4" Black and Marina Rustic Style Marble Staunton Chess Pieces
Marble chess pieces are a classic alternative to the traditional wood Staunton pieces. These stone pieces are hand carved in numerous colors and, due to the natural nature of the material, each one is unique. The rustic design is a standard Staunton with clearly distinguishable pieces that emphasize the hand-made nature of the craft. Each stone piece has a felt bottom to help protect the playing surface and they come in an elegant embossed storage box with individual slot storage for each piece.
Black Marble ranges from pure black to gray and often will have some variation in color. Marina is a truly unusual marble color, ranging from terracotta to a brownish orange. It often has strong character in the form of natural striation.
Marble is great for a display piece making a unique artistic statement around the home. Please note marble is also quite fragile, so while you certainly can play with the pieces you should do so with care. The pieces all come in an embossed black leatherette case with two clasps. The case has individual slot storage for the pieces. This stylish design allows ease of storage for the marble chess pieces if they cannot be left out for use.
This is a full set of 32 chess pieces. Chess board not included. Made in Pakistan.
