The glory of Elizabethan England is commemorated perfectly in this set of stunning UK-made resin chess pieces.

The reign of Queen Elizabeth The First was a time of profound growth and expansion for England and its empire. ‘The Virgin Queen’ as Elizabeth was known (for refusing to marry and thereby dilute her authority), evolved England into a proud nation and her reign is now associated with 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 rich, red and Cream colouring.
