In the heart of rural Somerset in the South West of England, Berkeley Chess apply traditional production techniques to painstakingly create beautiful replicas of original sculptures. Each piece is cast in a silicon mould and then hand polished to bring out the exquisite detail and then finished with a protective felt base. The skilled craftsmen at Berkeley Chess have produced two variants of these pieces, Victorian and Traditional, capturing the original detail and character.
