16" Italian Metal and Wood Staunton Chess Set, Black and White
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.
This fantastic and unique chess board features what we call a pyramidal design where several of the squares are raised making an unusual, uneven playing surface that adds fantastic dimension to any chess display.
The squares on this set are black for the dark squares and a glossy mother-of-pearl for the light side. A unique artistic mosaic surrounds the base of the entire board.
This luxurious chess board blends the artistry of chess with the game looks fantastic with both traditional staunton and unique theme chessmen, and is a wonderful addition to a chess collection.
This board includes a simple zippered storage case.
Pieces made in Italy, Board made in Turkey. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
