Indians were the first to play chess, developing the rules of the game at the start of the 3rd century. The very first chess sets and boards were produced for the wealthy by talented craftsmen using luxurious, rare materials. Today, chess is played all over the world, and many of the chess set products that are available on the market today reflect modern mass production. These chess sets and boards are made from flimsy plastic and cardboard and just aren’t made to stand the test of time.
The Handmade Indian Chess Set marks a return to the traditional methods of craftsmanship with a chess board and chess pieces that are constructed the old way–meticulously by hand by a single artisan who is dedicated to making every detail perfect. The chess set is produced by the woodworkers and stonemasons of Rajasthan, Jaipur, India, and is of true luxury quality when compared to ordinary chess sets and boards.
With the Handmade Indian Chess Set, you’ll receive everything needed to play chess with an opponent. The set includes traditional chess pieces in black and white made out of premium stone. The chess board top is also crafted out of inlaid soapstone placed atop a durable box made out of sheesham wood. Measuring 12 inches by 12 inches in size, the chess board opens to reveal a padded interior with slots for all of the chess pieces. You can keep the pieces stored inside of the box between games; however, many people leave the chess set set up on a table in their homes to show off its beauty until they are ready to play chess again. The storage box features metal hinges and two metal clasps to keep the lid secured.
Play chess the way the game was meant to be enjoyed–with a chess board that is painstakingly crafted by hand and meant to be passed down through generations. Get the perfect gift for a beginner or seasoned chess player for any occasion. Order the Handmade Indian Chess Set today.
