This beautiful theme chess set depicts figures from the medieval period. Chess pieces are represented by exactly those characters (kings, queens, bishops, knights, and castles) during that time so this will be one of the easiest theme chess sets you'll ever play with! Chess pieces are made from a durable poly resin. Chess pieces are intricately and meticulously hand painted in bright, realistic colors. The king is 3" tall with a 1" base. We recommend a chess board with 1.75" to 2" squares for this chess set (not included). (*Chessboard is not included).
