16" Black and Marina Rustic 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 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.
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. The boards all come in an embossed black leatherette case with two clasps. This stylish design allows ease of storage for the marble chess board if it cannot be left out for use. A useful strip within allows the board to be pulled up and thus easily removed from the case.
Black Marble ranges from pure black to gray and often will have some variation in color. Marina is a truly unusual marble color, ranging from terracotta to a brownish orange. It often has strong character in the form of natural striation.
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.
