(5 reviews)
Handcrafted from bronze and brass, this stunning Manopoulos chess set honours Cycladic art and brings its characters to life. The weighted bronze pieces depict the broad shouldered king standing alongside his pregnant queen as the centrepiece of the set.

A minimal bishop, knight from the war of Troy and a replica marble entrance for the castle complete this line of pieces. To the front, the pawns are modelled on an idol of the Cycladic period.

An engraved message can be added to a brass plate on the lid of the presentation box for a beautifully unique gift.

Dimensions:

  • Board Size: 43.5cm x 43.5cm, Square Size: 45mm

It’s a stunning chess set. Particularly like the board. Very impressive. It takes getting used to non-conventional pieces like the curvy Queen. But I like it. It’s heavy and solid. Really nice used but decorative piece in lounge.

Does not match the photos, I know it is hand painted but some pieces have no gold on them at all. The board is patchy and more brown than blue. So disappointing
