This gorgeous little chess set features some of southern Africa’s most well-known and loved birds, livening up any room! Revel in the flamboyant and dazzling tones and hues of the hand-cast and painted poly-stone pieces. Admire the intricacy of the designs carved into both the chess set’s wooden board and poly-stone frame.
The miniature African bird chess set features the following playing pieces:

- The Queen – Hornbill
- The Bishop – Kingfisher
- The Knight – Owl
- The Rook – Francolin/ Guinea fowl (opposite sides)

The set’s chess pieces, board and inlay designs were carved by hand and then used to create molds which accurately reproduce them in poly-stone (a unique mixture of crushed stone and resin). They are then painted by hand in incredible detail by a team of exceptionally talented South African artists using high-quality Winsor and Newton oil paints.
You can feel good knowing your purchase supports those South African artisans who produce these fine detailed sets.
