Distinctive and opulent red and gold chess cabinet with a lift off lid and storage for chess pieces. Designed and manufactured in Florence Italy, the cabinet includes solid brass chess pieces that are plated in gold and silver for an opulent look and feel. They are based loosely on the Staunton design that is so familiar, such as the bridled Knight yet have much more detail than is usually found on wooden pieces. The bottom of each piece is fitted with a high quality red billiard cloth pad, protecting the playing surface from scratches during play.
The cabinet is precision engineered from red stained Erable wood and features a light dusting of golden dust that highlights the wood's grain. The cabinet is then coated in a thick high gloss lacquer and features diamond effect clusters in each corner. At 12 inches Square, this chess set is compact yet does not compromise on lavishness and flamboyancy. It represents the finest in modern Italian chess set design.
