Theme Chess Pieces from Berkley

From Chess Baron



Berkeley Chess. The Grand Masters of Decorative Chess Pieces. These chess pieces are designed and made in England from crushed marble and boned with high quality resin. Since marble is the base ingredient, the sets of chess pieces shown below are generally quite heavy and are all of exceptional quality. Traditional production techniques are used to create beautiful replicates of the original sculptures. The exquisite detail of the design is brought to life by careful development of a silicon mould and a unique staining and polishing technique which emphasises the fine detail of the original figures. Exclusive to ChessBaron Canada.
