The most recognisable and legendary icons of Hollywood's golden era are brought spectacularly to life in our wonderfully unique chess set, including stone resin pieces sculpted in the UK and a beautifully glossy Anegre and Maple Board.

Following the silent movie era of the early 20th century, the 1920s marked the beginning of a new cinematic Golden Age, with massive film studios such as MGM, Paramount and 20th Century Fox kick-starting the careers of legendary actors such as The Keystone Cops, Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers and Charlie Chaplin. Providing enjoyably escapist entertainment for audiences of the day, these screen legends continue to captivate film lovers today.

This uniquely imaginative chess set brings the classic stars back to life, and feature many of the most popular screen legends of the day.
