King John Chess Set in Brass (X2026)
This solid brass set has a King that is 4 inch in height. The pieces are luxurious and have strong attention to detail. The set is clearly differentiated for both sides (some metal sets can be a little confusing in colour difference for each side). Over time the pieces improve in appearance as the air causes colour amelioration, older sets are often prized for their colouring. The detail for the knight is outstanding for a set made in metal - often these sets have only a broad detail. For a Staunton metal chess set this is the finest set we have seen in all respects. There are double Queens for pawn promotion.
