17 1/2" Italian Solid Wood and Brass Artistic Oriental Staunton Chess Set
These imported Italian chess pieces are some of the most unique and impressive of our staunton collection.
This chess set 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 an arena-like coliseum design where the outer squares are raised and the pieces descend in to the battlefield below.
The squares on this board are stained black for the dark squares and a glossy mother-of-pearl for the light side. An artistic mosaic surrounds the base of the entire board for an extra feature of elegence.
Unlike many boards, it is difficult to determine the correct size pieces for this board. This is because some squares are smaller than others in the rounded design. It looks fantastic with an assortment of metal and resin theme chess pieces, but could also be used for more traditional chessmen. This is a truly unique chessboard that would find a home in many chess collections.
This board includes a simple zippered storage case.
Pieces made in Italy, Board made in Turkey. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
