The beautiful Elizabethan era is celebrated with this set of stunning UK-made resin chess pieces, made in Somerset, UK by the expert craftsmen at Berkeley Chess.
Queen Elizabeth The First is remembered for the profound growth and expansion of England and its empire during her reign. ‘The Virgin Queen’ as Elizabeth was known (for refusing to marry and thereby dilute her authority), developed England into one of the world leading nations, and her reign is remembered for icons such as William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake.
This intricately crafted set of pieces has been cast from luxury crushed stone resin and coloured with a handsome russet brown and cream colouring.
