This unique chess set has an exotic design. These lovely slender hand carved chessmen are made in the Carpathian Mountains. The pieces are weighted for balance, and made from sturdy wild cherry wood. The King and Queen's crowns are in contrasting color giving this set a elegant grace.
This prized chess set includes a wood chess board which doubles as a storage area for the chess pieces - the carrying case not only protects the pieces but also opens to serve as an algebraic chessboard! The King is a serious 5.5 inches tall and is, and like each of the chess pieces, made from wild cherrywood - known for its fine grain and excellent finish. The chess board is 22.85" x 22.8" perfect for display at home or in the office. The interior of the storage compartment is lined with green felt which cushions the chess pieces for easy and safe transport. And of course the bottom of each piece is felt-covered to protect the wooden chess board from scratches.
This chess set is wonderfully detailed, unique and decorative... You will enjoy many years of chess play
