Cast Metal Chess Sets
Our range of metal chess sets features both cast and lathed chess pieces. You might be wondering what the difference is when it comes to the finished product. Generally speaking the cast sets can feature high level of intricate detail, often seemingly embossed on the surface of the pieces. This makes for very decorate chess pieces. Cast chessmen are also easier to reproduce in a commercial environment this making them cheaper than their lathed counterparts. The downside to cast chess sets is of course the visible mold line. While the fine Italian chess sets will of course keep this to a minimum, it is still visible. Lathed, or turned, chessmen on the other hand will have no such mold line. Because each piece has to be lathed by a human being the cost is generally higher but the end result more pleasing for the person who expects more the aircraft grade look to their metal chess set.
