This unique and elegant chess set from Italy includes Italfama's Roman Buts chess pieces matched with their Tuscan Marble and Wood Chess Case. The Roman Bust is an impressively large and heavy chess set with a 4.75 inch tall king. The pieces are designed as a broken Roman column with a bust sitting atop. The king is Julius Caesar, his Queen Cleopatra, and the bishop is Mark Antony. The knight is the bust of a Roman horse, a castle tower the rook, and the pawn the bust of a legionnaire. Pieces are made of cast zinc using the old-world lost wax casting process and have a lustrous brass and nickel plating that is lacquered so that they never tarnish.
This large and luxurious chess case from Italfama features a Tuscan marble chess board supported by a beautiful wood case with a drawer on each side for storing pieces when you want to put them away.
