This theme chess set from Italfama is based on the life 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. The pieces are cast from solid metal using the age-old lost-wax casting process. The pieces are then brass and nickel plated and hand painted to highlight the design and detail of each piece. This is a large chess set with a 3.75” king. The interesting history with the artful design of the pieces make this a special chess set you will treasure a lifetime.
