3 1/4" Red and Coral 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.
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. Coral is an exotic yellow color that has a great deal of complexity due to the shells and fossils within. The intense variation makes blemishes much less apparent.
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.
