A truly impressive, large-size gladiator inspired chess set by Sunrise Handicraft of Poland. Featuring beautifully hand-carved chess pieces, this eye-catching set includes a folding board that doubles as a storage case for the chessmen. When open during play, the board is approximately 60cm square.
Hand-carved from lime wood, the chess pieces feature superb detailing and take inspiration from Ancient Rome and the infamous gladiators. The pawns and bishops are intricately crafted gladiator busts set on ornate wooden stands, with the rook taking the form of a Roman column. All the pieces are weighted and have felted bottoms.
The large size board (approximately 60cm when open) features 6cm squares burnt and stained in contrasting light and dark colours and features notation around the borders. The board folds to double as a felt lined storage case for the pieces when not in use. When folded, it is secured with metal clasps.
