This beautiful European chess set combines the Napoleon Theme metal chess set from Italfama in Italy with a handcrafted wood chess board from Rechapados Ferrer in Spain. This interesting chess set depicts Napoleon Bonaparte and his wife Josephine along with other key figures from his French army. The knight is a rearing stallion with a cavalryman atop. The pieces are made from solid cast zinc using the old world lost wax casting process and are brass and nickel plated. The king is 3.3” tall and has a base diameter of .9”.
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.
