Imagine this stunning 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 depicts the key figures from during the medieval period including the king, queen, bishop, and knight, and castle. The pieces are wonderfully designed with features and detail that makes this set so visually interesting.
This is a large chess set with a king that measures 3.625 inches tall and a 1.25 inch diameter base. Cast from solid zinc using the age-old lost-wax casting process, you will love the way they heavy pieces feel. The pieces are brass and nickel plated and then hand painted to accent different features on the pieces. The pieces are then 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.
