This exquisite chess set from Europe combines the Napoleon Theme metal chess pieces from Italfama with a Blue Ash Burl and Erable chess board from Rechapados Ferrer. Napoleon and his military conquests have long been a favorite subject for theme chess sets. This design from Italfama renders Napoleon Bonaparte, his wife Josephine, and other key elements of his French army. The detail captured on each piece is amazing. Cast from solid zinc using the age-old lost-wax casting process, you will love the way these heavy pieces feel when playing. The pieces are brass and nickel plated followed by several layers of lacquer to prevent tarnishing and keep them beautiful and shiny year after year.
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.
