This beautiful European chess set combines solid metal chess pieces from the craftsmen at Italfama in Italy with a handcrafted wood chess board from Rechapados Ferrer in Spain. This is Italfama's Large Arabesque Classic Staunton Metal Chess Set with each piece having a decorative arabesque pattern creating an unusually elegant look to the pieces. These are cast from solid zinc using the age-old lost-wax casting process and are brass and nickel plated. The King is 4" tall and has a base diameter or 1.25".
The blue ash burl and erable chess board creates a stunning backdrop against the bright gold and silver color of the brass and nickel plated chess pieces. The natural wood grain of the ash burl creates a range of rich blue colors that softly swirl and intermingle creating unique and colorful patterns. The white squares are whitened bird's-eye maple that contrasts nicely with the dark blue squares. The board is finished in high gloss polyurethane that produces a glass-like finish reflecting the color of the metal chess pieces. These unique metal chess pieces from Italy matched with this luxurious chess board from Spain create a very special chess set that will enhance every game you play and look stunning displayed in your home.
