Distinctive Red and Gold chess cabinet with a lift off lid and storage for chess pieces. Designed and manufactured in Florence Italy, the cabinet includes solid Brass chess pieces that are plated in Gold and Silver. They are based loosely on the Staunton design that is so familiar, such as the bridled Knight yet have much more detail than is usually found on wooden pieces. The bottom of each piece is fitted a distinctive red felt pad, protecting the playing surface from scratches during play.
The cabinet is constructed from red stained Erable wood and features a light dusting of golden dust that highlights the wood's grain. The cabinet is then coated in a thick high gloss lacquer and features diamond effect clusters in each corner. At 12 inches Square, this chess set is compact yet does not compromise on lavishness and flamboyancy. It represents the finest in modern Italian chess set design.
