This elegant chess set is named after Hadrian, the famous Roman Emperor and military administrator that ruled from 117 to 138. Hadrian is known for having re-built the Pantheon and building the Temple of Venus and Roma but his most famous work was Hadrian's Wall which stretch for over 73 miles across Britain and marked the northern limit of Roman Britain. This is a large club size chess set with a 4.4" tall king and a 1.9" diameter base. The pieces are made from genuine ebony and boxwood and are heavily weighted for exceptional stability on the chess board. The knight features a bridle and reigns and finely carved features including ears, eyes, mane, and mouth. The king has an ornate finial that that incorporates two small balls, one on each side of the finial. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and eloquent lines turned into the base. Even the rook stands out as an extraordinary piece with its' unique parapet and crenellations. The pawns are extra-large making them easy to handle and we include 2 extra queens for pawn promotion. Thick green baize pads on the bottom allow the pieces to easily slide across the chess board and make for a soft landing. Whether you are a collector or looking for just one special chess set to display in your home, the Hadrian is an exceptional choice.
