Chess Pieces

Our hand painted theme chess sets are valuable representations of a hitorical event, a special genre, or a special recognised theme. An artisan has painstakingly taken an unfinished piece and, using specialist material, decorated each one detail by detail. Their price under-represents the amount of work and skill involved, they are collectible and valuable and will appreciate over time.

Many earlier models of the genre bring high values at auction - these are the chess sets that will appear in future auctions at excellent prices. They are excellent for display and use. They're not all stern and serious, we also market many fun genre's, but the standard is very high. You are looking at hand painted chess sets as gifts that will be passed with pride to the next generation. Replacement pieces are available for these chess sets.
