This elegant chess set created by the designers and craftsmen of Italfama has a traditional Staunton design that is ideal for both playing chess and using for décor in the home. The surface of each piece is decorated with an arabesque ornamental pattern giving them a luxurious appearance. Pieces are made from solid metal using the old-world, lost-wax casting process. They are then brass and nickel plated and lacquered to prevent tarnishing. This is a medium size chess set with a 3" king and a base diameter of 1". Pieces have red felt pads embossed with the Italfama logo. One of Italfama’s most popular chess sets.
Our Deluxe Two-Drawer Walnut Chess Case is the ideal choice for combining a chess board with a way of storing chess pieces when you're not playing a game. This exterior of the case is made from solid wood with an elegant molded edge design that incorporates a graceful curve and a three row beaded section at the top. The chess board is made from high quality walnut and maple veneer and has a decorative black inlaid border to delineate the playing area. There are two drawers that are offset from the playing position for those situations where it is desired or needed. The drawers completely pull out to make it easy to take pieces out or put them in. A recessed magnet on each of the drawer secures the drawer when closed. The compartments will hold a chess set with up to a 4.125" tall king and with base of 1.625". This is a beautiful chess case that will look stunning displayed in your home whether you keep your chess pieces out or put them away.
