About The Greek and Roman Period Metal Chess Set - 17"

The Chessmen

This period was characterized by fierce local as well as international wars. The aggressiveness of the Pawn and the Knight fully represent the ferocity of these wars. The posture of the King and Queen indicates their unquestionable leadership. The Bishop reveals his consideration for the movements of the imminent battle.  
Finally, the Castle is a reproduction of a pillar which characterized the architectural style during that period.

The period of time to receive the chess set was our concern. We were glad that weekly emails were sent us updated the order and difficulties occurring with it.
