Skilled craftsmen spend hours on each one of these Coiled Jerusalem Chess Pieces, hand turning their cylindrical shape from blocks of golden rosewood and boxwood.
Once the shape has been established, the craftsmen then hand carve the finite details of each piece.
The end result is a set of astonishing chess pieces based on religious motifs of the ancient western and eastern worlds. Each one of these pieces has a slightly different finish because of the hand crafting technique used to make them, bringing a ‘one-off’ element to every set of Coiled Jerusalem Chess Pieces.
The king is a tall 3.75 inches (95 mm) in height but covers just 1.15 inches (28 mm) at the base, which makes the Coiled Jerusalem Chessmen best suited to boards of 15 to 16 inches.
