Imagine this beautiful metal theme chess set sitting on your chess board whether you are playing a game of chess or they are simply decorating your living room. This beautifully sculpted chess set from the workshop of Italfama in Florence, Italy is truly one of their master pieces. This theme chess set is based on the history of Mary Stuart Queen of Scots. Born during the Reformation, Queen Mary lived a controversial life during a time of religious turmoil when Protestantism and Catholicism fought for control. Linked to a plot to assassinate her cousin Queen Elizabeth I of England, she was eventually executed.
This is a large chess set with a king that measures 3.75 inches tall and a 1.5 inch diameter base. Cast from solid zinc using the age-old lost-wax casting process, you will love the way these heavy pieces feel. The pieces are brass and nickel plated and sealed with several layers of lacquer to prevent tarnishing and keep them beautiful and shiny year after year. Whether you are investing in this fine chess set for yourself or buying it for a gift, the interesting history along the artistic design of the pieces make this a special set you will treasure a lifetime.
