Range Wars Chess Set (ST2014)
Back to America's range wars with this excellent detailed set that would be a great gift for anyone with an interest in the development of America in the early years. It's the cowboy hats that really give this set it's distinction - we love it. The kings are represented by a rancher, the queens by a saloon girl, the Bishops by a sheriff, the knights by a cowboy, the castles by a Boot Hill Tombstone and the pawns are cattle. It's sculpted by George Pitman-Hooker, a West Somerset sculptor.
