Antique Chess Sets
Unique, Cool, Fancy Chess sets for PLAY and DISPLAY
I love the look of chess boards. They make incredible decorations, and of course they can be great when you want top play the game that Kings, Shahs and emperors have played for over a thousands years.
Chess is a game of kings. Versions of the game of chess has been found as far back as 500-600 AD. Making it one of the oldest and most popular games in history.
I am by no means a chess master, but I personally find it a quite enjoyable game. It sharpens strategy and tactics and teaches the players to think ahead and try to "get into the head" of their opponents.
The game is simple, and yet the variations and nuances are known to be incredibly complex. The Chess Sets and boards you can buy are the same way.
There are simple wooden Chess sets, Marble Chess sets, Antique chess set, gold and silver chess sets, unique themed chess sets, heck, there are even variations on the game, like the unique, 3D Chess. There are quite a few interesting chess sets you can buy.
There are less inexpensive chess sets designed for play and there are more expensive chess sets that are designed to be just as must a "show" piece and a decoration as they are to actually be played. Why you can even find some that are layered with actual gold and silver that can set you back quite a bit!

All pieces and board hand crafted in Poland, the pieces being made from Hornbeam wood and the board from Birch.
