Plain Theme

Chess Sets

Our theme chess designs are made from crushed marble and bonded with high quality resin. Some are hand decorated, but many customers prefer the plain undecorated finish more typical of theme chess sets. Since marble is the base ingredient, the sets of chess pieces shown below are generally quite heavy and are all of exceptional quality.

They are shipped in sturdy cardboard cases that can comfortably be used and reused time after time.
Naturally, spare pieces are available for the chess sets if some unfortunate event should occur, although you'll find the chess pieces suprisingly robust and resistant to damage from accidents!

From the Isle of Lewis to the American Civil War

The purchase of a theme chess set from ChessBaron is a purchase of distinction. An ornament is just an ornament - a chess set with some historical theme such as Napolean or King Arthur is much more. Here's something more thought provoking than a china plate ornament, something that recalls some important theme, some history changing event like the Range Wars chess set, or something more frivolous - a theme chess set to bring a smile to someones face like the dinosaur chess set or the cats and dogs chess set. Note: Can also be used to play chess!
