Cornish Chess Set – this unique chess set is handmade in Cornwall from solid pewter and each piece is packed in bubble-wrap and then in an outer box. There is no wooden board or wooden box . Each piece is relevant to Cornwall and is depicted as follows:
Pawn – Lighthouse (H: 50mm, W:25mm) Rook/Castle – Mining Engine house (H: 62mm W: 30mm)
Bishop – Cornish Celtic cross (H: 65mm, W:32mm) Knight – Sword & Shield (H: 65mm W: 32mm)
Queen – Bal Maiden (H: 73mm W: 31mm) King – Cornish Miner (H: 76mm W: 31mm)
The two opposing sets are distinguished by one being highly polished and the other antiqued to give the pewter a slightly darker finish.
The chess pieces will fit onto 4cm squares leaving room to make moves. Please note that the board in the photo is not included.
