This beautiful chess set from Europe combines Italfama's Modern Staunton Brass chess pieces from Italy with Rechapados Ferrer's Blue Ash Burl and Whitened Bird's Eye Maple chess board from Spain. One of Italfama's most creative chess sets, it has a simplistic design with a sleek profile and unique Staunton-like shapes. The knights are most noticeably contemporary while at the same time easily recognized as a horses bust, a more traditional knight. The pieces are made from solid brass with the white pieces nickel plated. The king is 2.5" tall and has a base diameter of 1".
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.
