The Tower Series Carved Chessmen craftsmen start off as large blocks of golden rosewood and boxwood. From there the craftsmen begin to hand carve away the excess until a thin, gainly base shape is made. The next stage is the piercing of the wood to create the dotted etchings that have defined this series. Once every finite detail is perfected, the unique figureheads are painstakingly carved and the fretted Tower Chessmen are then finished to an understated shine and ready for sale.

Despite being tall, with a king of 4.5 inches (112 mm), their bases are a large 1.4 inches (36 mm) with the added weights, this gives them a sturdy yet swift feeling in hand.

To get the best out of these pieces we have matched them with a 19.7 inch Deluxe chess board produced by the renowned chess board maker Rechapados Ferrer of Spain. High grade Walnut and Maple veneered construction along with modern fabrication techniques produce boards with distinct lines and very critical detailing. With its rich tones and dense grain Walnut is a particularly popular wood choice for modern interiors. The board's base is also veneered and is equally well finished.

When not in use, the hand made chess piece from solid Golden Rosewood (also know as sheesham), an exotic wood, rich in yellow and red tones with the most beautiful and distinctive grain. As well as being a work of art in its own right, it is also the perfect storage facility and suitable for pieces up to 4.5 inches in height. Open up the hinge lid, the compartment inside is lined with green flocking to protect your treasured pieces for many years.

Finally, a Turnier clock in cream completes this beautiful set. A traditional design using quality mechanisms this clock is made in Europe using quality glossy cream plastic rather than wood. Perfect for beginners or schools. Wind-up Mechanism - No Batteries Required
