Product Details

Over 5000 years later, we continue to be fascinated with the ancient Egyptian civilization. Their advancements in science, architecture, and medicine continue to mystify modern scientists and engineers. Their world and the priceless buried treasure they left behind thousand of years later captivate us. Now, you have the chance to get a taste of that ancient style and wonder with our beautifully made Egyptian sculpted pewter chess pieces. Pharaoh, the Royal Consort, the Falcon god Horus, the Cat god Beset, a classic Egyptian Obelisk and finally the after-life god Anubis all play their roles as the King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawn respectively in this gorgeous rendition of chess. the pieces display an incredible array of detail on all sides, including hieroglyphs! It's truly a stunning set that you will want to display in a place of prominence.

Our thoughts: These pieces come with a felt underlay on each piece that you, like us, may find is really not adequate for the purpose felts are usually provided, to protect a chessboard surfacing from scratching. You may feel they are fine or you may want to add some felt material on your own. The pewter pieces have an amazing heavy feel and inspiring presence, so it's a pity the felts are less than impressive.
