This stunning Renaissance theme chess set from the workshop of Italfama in Florence, Italy is truly a master piece and perhaps the most popular set they ever created. Pieces are cast from solid zinc using the age-old lost wax casting process. The pieces are then brass and nickel plated followed by several layers of lacquer to prevent tarnishing and keep them shiny year after year. Each piece represents a figure from the Renaissance period including the king and queen, church bishop, a knight’s stallion, castle tower, and the king’s guard. Pieces are intricately detailed with a unique design and pattern adding elegance to the set. This a very large and heavy set with the king measuring 5.5 inches tall and the complete set weighing nearly nine pounds. Whether you are investing in this fine chess set for yourself or buying for a gift, you will be thoroughly impressed with the size, weight, quality, and elegance of this chess set from Italy.
