A beautiful Roman inspired Chess set made from ground stone resin. Manufactured in the UK by Berkeley Chess, the Chessmen are wonderfully finished in contrasting cream and red shading and feature excellent levels of detail.
Featuring many recognisable characters from the Roman Empire and with a King height of 4.25 inches, the set is truly eye catching. The pieces are a good weight and also feature felted bottoms.
The skillful craftsmen of Berkeley Chess have recreated the imperious atmosphere of Rome with this classical chess set. The details of each piece are as follows:
- King: Julius Caesar
- Queen: A Lady of noble birth in typical dress
- Bishop: A Standard Bearer carrying the insignia of the Legion
- Knight: Equestrian soldier of the period
- Rook: A Roman garrison tower
- Pawn: Armed Legionnaire of the period
Please note that a board is not included. We would recommend a board with 50mm squares for this Chess set.
