Victorian Chessmen

WWI018

These Victorian chessmen take the form of traditional English Playing card images creating a whimsical style. The pieces are well weighted with a ratio of crushed marble and resin, and then finished with a felt underlay. Each set is stained in Russet (a contemporary brown) and then further stained to add an antique effect. This results in an aged beautiful set that is eye catching and really stands out.
