The magical atmosphere of Hollywood’s Golden Age has been brought to life in this set of stone crushed resin chess men, carefully crafted in the UK and finished in a cardinal red and cream colouring.
The 1920s until the 1950s is seen as Hollywood’s golden age. The silent movie era gave way to big-time studios such as MGM, Paramount and 20th Century Fox. Many iconic actors arose during this time, including Charlie Chaplin, Mae West, Laurel and Hardy and The Marx Brothers. The glamourous lifestyles and extraordinary talent of these new superstar actors provided a great escape for audiences of the time, and they continue to light up our screens to this day with that inimitable movie magic.
These imaginative and intricately detailed chess pieces bring the classic stars alive, and feature many of the most popular screen legends of the day.
