Sold and shipped by Skyline Chess
Perfect for both lovers of architecture, design and chess, our set makes a fantastic gift for any occasion.
We’ve chosen a range of buildings from across the city, some of which capture the essence of the early 1900’s construction boom and the growth of skyscraper architecture, through to their more contemporary counterparts, along with some of the city’s most recognisable silhouettes:
King – One World Trade Tower
Queen – Empire State Building
Bishop – Chrysler Building
Knight – Flatiron Building
Rook – Guggenheim Museum
Pawn – Brownstone House
Each set comes complete with a screen-printed wooden map board and presentation box.
Each of the pieces is 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.
King: 19.5cm tall
Queen: 17cm tall
Bishop: 13cm tall
Knight: 6cm tall
Rook: 5cm tall
Pawn: 3cm tall
This one-of-a-kind set will take pride of place in any home – its stunning premium metal pieces are too eye-catching to ever pack away.
