Designed and manufactured in Milan, Italy, constructed from solid Brass and Nickel plated Brass with beautifully detailed decorative embossing. The pieces are a good weight and feel nicely balanced in the player's hand and are cast and hand finished. The design is based on the classic Staunton concept, however the result is something more allegorical and detailed. The pieces are fitted with red felt pads on their underside to protect the playing surface and are presented in a special cardboard presentation box, making them the perfect gift.
Although these pieces have a small King's base diameter just over an inch, their slim, tall outline warrants a larger square size than usual. We recommend chess boards with square sizes of 1.8 inches or above, 19 or 20 inches in length.
