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 the Northern Californian city, featuring its most recognisable forms from the 20th Century, including the iconic Painted Ladies and Transamerica Pyramid and also its latest edition, the Salesforce Tower, which opened in January 2018:
King – Salesforce Tower
Queen – Transamerica Pyramid
Bishop– Coit Tower
Knight – Columbus Tower
Rook – St. Marys Cathedral
Pawn – Painted Ladies
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: 16.5cm tall
Queen: 15.5cm tall
Bishop: 9cm tall
Knight: 6.5cm 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.
