Canterbury Chess Set

The Canterbury Cathedral chess set has been created in great detail from the architecture and statuary seen in, and around, Canterbury Cathedral.

The city of Canterbury has been a place of Christian worship for nearly two thousand years. Following a major fire at the original cathedral in 1174, the monks at Canterbury used the revenue from the many pilgrims visiting the shrine and relics of St Thomas to create the first Gothic cathedral in England. The reconstruction continued during the following century and at the end of the Middle Ages, Canterbury Cathedral was one of the noblest churches in Christendom.

This is an outstanding chess set design made from ground stone resin. The regular Chess set comes in contrasting brown and ivory shades so that opposing pieces are easily distinguished. In the decorated version of the Chess set the clothing, weaponry and accessories have all been painstakingly hand-painted.
