This exquisite chess set from the designers at Italfama blends contemporary and traditional Staunton features to form a chess set that is not only decorative but an excellent set for playing a game of chess. The pieces combine solid brass with a walnut stained and natural hornbeam wood. The white pieces are nickel plated. The knight is a simple silhouette cutout of brass while the other pieces feature a robust profile with graceful curves. The king is 3.5" tall and has a base diameter of 1.1". The complete set weighs over 7 pounds so you know the pieces are heavy.
The blue ash burl and erable chess board creates a stunning backdrop against the dark and light wood with 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.
