Mascott Chess - American Independence Chess Set (ST2016)
Starring George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, please exercise caution if displaying this in English homes - it might lead to some violent arguments. Of course, being responsible objective citizens and having a branch in England, we are lodging an official complaint that the English side is the dark side with Cornwallis, King George III and Frederick Lord North. The war of independence was of utmost importance in the evolution of geopolitics in the political west. The detail of this chess set is incredible and a fitting tribute to this historic pivot point. Washington is weighted at an embarrassing 295g - we'll have to deliver it with special lifting equipment! He probably didn't weigh that much in real life. An amazing chess set and a wonderful gift.
