16" Black and Coral European Style Marble Chess Set

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.

These hand-made marble chess boards are ideal for chess enthusiasts that want something unique for their smaller traditional staunton or theme chess pieces. The style is traditional with two marble colors, and each board is hand carved, so no two sets are ever exactly alike. There are a lot of variations in the stone and often have a weathered, rustic appearence. Because of the variation, these boards are not best for perfectionists. These marble sets should be left out on display when possible! Each marble board has a felted bottom to help protect any surface from scratching.

Black Marble ranges from pure black to gray and often will have some variation in color. 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.

This is a full set of 32 chess pieces with board. Please choose border a color. Made in Pakistan

Beautiful set

The chess set is gorgeous and better looking in person than the photos. The only reason for four and not five stars is that one case arrived very damaged. Customer service was easy to reach considering COVID and they’ve agreed to replace it. We would absolutely do business with chess USA again but this set will probably last is a lifetime.
