SPANISH COURT CHESS SET
The Spanish Court chess pieces are fully hand-crafted. They have been polished, slightly weighted and made from lime wood. The burned folding chess board has two compartments for the chess pieces storage inside which are finished with felt lining.
With its bold lines and noble looks of the chessmen, the name of this chess set couldn’t be better as it resembles life at the Spanish Court. The Kings, Queens and Bishops all were the then-modern ruffs. Tiny soldiers (the pawns) with a shield in their hands protect the royal ranks from your opponent’s attack.
Other than its name, the set is of kingly dimensions too: At a height of 15 cm, the king with its opulent figure is anything but small and is a force to be reckoned with. Lime wood has been used to carve these wonderful chess pieces, which are all slightly weighted. A huge board of 60 x 60 cm can accommodate all the pieces in its two compartments which are lined with red felt. The board is fold able and can be securely closed and it is crafted from beech and birch wood. In total, the entire set brings 3.7 kg on the scale. Needless to say that this wonderfully crafted chess set is handmade. Decorative metal clasps keep the board securely locked after play.
This chess set is ideally suited for you, if you want a large chess set of opulent dimensions and you insist on handmade quality. It is not only a great set for playing chess with friends or family but also makes for an eye-catching piece of home decor when not in use. A great handcrafted chess set for all lovers of this truly kingly game.
