This beautiful brass and nickel chess set from Manopoulos is based on the last battle of Zeus in which he established his dominion in Olympus. Zeus is the king, Athena the queen, Aris the bishop, Centaur the knight, and the giants are the pawns. A column from an ancient Greek building is the rook. Chess pieces are hand-cast in solid zinc and then brass and nickel plated. Chess pieces are then lacquered to keep the lustrous finish from ever tarnishing. This chess set is also available in complete chess set package includes the Manopoulos chess board and wood case for storage. A gorgeous chess set that will look beautiful in your home or office!
