3 1/2" Black and White European Style Staunton Marble 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 European style marble chess pieces are a refined take on marble chess pieces, combining the natural material with a design reminiscent of the traditional ‘french’ Staunton used as a standard during most tournaments. These pieces feature more precise and detailed carvings than the rustic marble chessmen, with additional details for nearly every piece. 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. White marble will sometimes have gray streaks across it. These natural variations give each board an individual character.
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.
