The glory of Elizabethan England is commemorated perfectly in this stunning UK-made chess set. The set comes paired with a deluxe Palisander and Maple Deluxe Chess Board.
The reign of Queen Elizabeth The First was a time of profound economic growth and empirical expansion for England. ‘The Virgin Queen’ as Elizabeth was known (for refusing to dilute her authority through marriage), brought England forward into a new era now associated with icons such as William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake.
This intricately crafted set of pieces has been cast from heavy crushed stone resin and finished with a deep, rich Russet Brown and Palisander Cream colouring.
