The Kings height is approximately 95mm (3.75") tall and has a wide rounded base diameter of just over 33mm (1 3/8"). The smooth lines of detail make the knights look distinctive and are outstanding. All Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a hand polished lacquer finish producing a beautiful lustre.
The set is clearly differentiated in colouring for both sides, the darker pieces are anodized not lacquered so their dark colour will remain after years of use
These pieces should never require polishing as they are specially coated to prevent tarnishing. Over time the pieces improve in appearance as the air causes colour amelioration, this results in older sets being prized more for their aged colouring.
This luxury presentation master crafted Chess Set represents outstanding value for money, and are exceptionally high in quality, appeal and Artistic Flare.
As with all of our Chess sets, the New Sleek and Ultra Modern Chess set combination exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality.
