Battle of Hastings Hand Painted Chess Set (TH2017)
A ChessBaron offering of a set of chess pieces representing the two opposing armies in the most famous battle fought on English soil. Harold, the English King leads his Saxon forces against the invading William, Duke of Normandy. It altered the course of English history from 1066 onwards. The amazing detail created by our sculptors is richly displayed in this historic chess set. This superb set has been a favourite since its introduction in regular brown and ivory finish. After many requests our artists have demonstrated their skills by hand decorating this set so that it now reveals more of the authentic detail in each piece. Note: Board is a selectable optional extra below.
