Manufacturer Description

High in the mystic Carpathian Mountains of Europe, home of the Dragon and the vampire myths, are found master artisans that draw deep from a wellspring of history dating back centuries, honoring the finest traditions in handmade wood carving. ChessCentral is proud to offer from these gifted craftsmen the Carpathian Collection - this chess set is named The Rakh after the the mythological deity Rakh, the Transformation God.

Notice the intricate detail given to the crowns of the King and Queen, with contrasting colors topping the crowns. They have delicately highlighted filigrees on the bases of the pieces, which lends this set a truly unique appearance. The entire chess set has been hand decorated with a specialized carving and burning technique.

This fine chess set includes a wood chess board which doubles as a storage container 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 2.56 inches tall and is, like each of the chess pieces, made from Beech wood - known for its fine grain and excellent finish. The chess board is 11.25; x 11.25 inches and decorated on the borders 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 - small enough for travel and large enough for comfortable playing. You will enjoy many years of chess play on this hand crafted wooden chess set.
