The exquisite detail of the design is brought to life by careful development of a silicon mold and a unique staining and polishing technique which emphasizes the fine detail in the original design. This chess set is stained in Cardinal (a contemporary red). It is then further stained to add an antique effect. This results in an aged beautiful set that is eye catching and really stands out. The pieces are well weighted with an improved ratio of crushed marble and resin. Each one is then finished off with the application of a protective base and presented in a beautiful yet practical packaging. Individually, each piece is a delight to behold, finely detailed and beautifully balanced.
