The Keystone Cops, Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers and Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp provided wonderful escapist entertainment for audiences of the day, and they continue to captivate film lovers today.

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.
