  • Shakespearean take on a classic design.

  • Ideal for a 17 or 18" board (43 - 45 cm).

The Verona Series Chess Pieces embrace the traditional Staunton design, enriched with Shakespearean elements. The bishop, for instance, maintains its classic form, but with a graceful twist that alludes to the tulip shape of the Renaissance. Similarly, the king and queen boast sturdy, cylindrical tops reminiscent of the fortress-like structures of that era. In Italy, where skilled artisans handcraft these metal pieces, meticulous attention is given to the knight's features, creating a vivid depiction of its cropped mane, muscular head, and thick bridle. The Verona Series offers two variations: the lighter pieces are handcrafted from solid brass, while the darker set is coated with a rustic layer of nickel.
Perfect for boards measuring 1.6 inches (41 mm) and larger, the Verona Series Metal Chess Pieces boast a regal base diameter of 0.9 inches (23 mm). An impeccable pairing, these chess pieces are best suited for a 17-18 inch (43-45 cm) square board.
