The magic behind Ancient Egyptian relics and history never fails capture our fascination with the impressive architecture of the Pyramids, Sphinx and Valley of the Kings. With the thousands upon thousands of artefacts catalogued at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo continuing to draw multitudes of visitors each year.
There are a fair few Egyptian themed sets available but this one from Berkeley Chess is striking in its simplicity. The cardinal red pieces are beautifully crafted from crushed stone resin to create all the figures that we associate with this mystical race.
The high gloss black anegre board from Spain complements these pieces beautifully and together would make an ideal gift for any Egyptian and / or chess enthusiast.
