Perfect for both lovers of architecture, design and chess, our set makes a fantastic gift for any occasion.
In our London Edition Pawns are terraced houses, Big Ben is the Rook, with the London Eye playing the Knight. 30 St Mary Axe is cast as the Bishop, and the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the Queen. No other building than Canary Wharf would be better suited to play the King, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.
Each set comes complete with a screen-printed wooden map board and presentation box.
Each of the pieces are hand cast using a unique resin and metal compound. This makes the pieces naturally weighty and allows them to be polished to a shine, giving them a metallic quality.
Hand-made moulds ensure that the architectural details of each building are beautifully captured and each piece has a hand applied soft felt base.
