Intricately carved pieces represent kings, knights, bishops and queens doing battle as chess pieces. This extraordinary chess set brings epic drama to the game. Working in contrasting tones of Rosewood and boxwood, the artist creates a circular game board with the chesspieces which are plugged in the wholes made on the chessboard to play further. Between games, they rest in a velvet lined drawer. This is a round shape compact chess measuring 5 inches in diameter. The carving of the wooden chess pieces is fine and uniform. The natural grains of Beautiful Rosewood are quiet evidence of our obsession for quality, that we use woods after thorough selection.
Chess liked by Generations will continue to be liked by many generations to come. This is a perfect, memorable and beautiful item to be gifted to your nears and dears and suitable for all age groups.
The workmanship is so fine that this chess almost looks like a work of art.
This product is made by the artisans of Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh. Popularly known as the ‘sheesham wood village’ Saharanpur is home to some of India’s finest wood carvers. Dating back to about 400 years in Mughal period, some craftsmen came from Kashmir and settled down in Saharanpur and took this work to earn their bread and butter. Gradually this art got extended amongst common man in Saharanpur.
