The rich heritage of Elizabethan England comes alive in this set of stunning UK-made resin chess pieces.
The reign of Queen Elizabeth The First was an era of extraordinary growth and development for England and its empire. ‘The Virgin Queen’ as Elizabeth was called (for refusing to marry and thereby dilute her authority), evolved the nation of England into a world leader and the Elizabethan era is now associated with icons such as William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake and his defeat of the Spanish Armada.
This intricately crafted set of pieces has been cast from luxury crushed stone resin and coloured with a beautiful copper and silver metallic finish.
