Hollywood’s Golden Age comes to the world of chess with this extraordinary set of stone crushed resin chess men.
Hollywood’s golden age, from the 1920s through to the 1950s, has always been seen as the most magical in the history of cinema. The silent movie era of the early 20th century ended, giving way to big-time studios such as MGM, Paramount and 20th Century Fox. The iconic actors of this time, including Charlie Chaplin, Mae West, Laurel and Hardy and The Marx Brothers, led glamourous and desirable lifestyles up in the Hollywood Hills, and offered a great escape for audiences of the time. These famous figureheads continue to light up our screens to this day with that inimitable movie magic.
This gorgeous set of highly imaginative and intricately detailed chess pieces bring the classic stars alive, and feature many of the most popular screen legends of the day.
Constructed in the UK from fine quality stone resin and finished with a russet and cream colouring, these luxurious pieces will take pride of place in any room of the house!
