The Trojan Wars chess set takes you back to a time when oversized wooden horses were considered a peace offering, and wars in Greece were as plentiful as their olives.
The Trojan Wars chess set depicts the Spartans and the Trojans prepared for war, each individual ceramic piece has been wonderfully hand painted by skilled artists. The pieces in our Trojan Wars chess set show great attention to detail as can be seen by clicking on the above picture.
The Trojan Wars chess set includes the classic characters of Achilles, Hector, Paris, and Helen of Sparta, as well as the notorious wooden horse that fooled the Trojans into defeat . Each piece is raised on a pedestal with a felt bottom to avoid scratching the board.
The board itself is 36 x 36cm, it is fantastically smooth and elegant; it is raised off the playing surface by bronze pillars on each corner. Each square on the board is indented, giving it a beautiful appearance.
The Trojan Wars chess set comes securely packaged in a stylish wooden storage box with bronze handles and clasps. The pieces are held individually in a fitted felt casing with the board fitting on top.
