Alexander The Great Chess Set
Alexander The Great Chess Set

"For I myself believe that there was at that time no race of mankind, no city, no single individual, to which the name of Alexander had not reached".
- Arrian

We are proud to bring you this 7" set of chess men carved in pure ebony and boxwood combo and depicting the best in Indian artistry.One side features Alexander the Great (Sikander) and the other features the Indian king Porus. The pawns of both the armies have traditional dresses of their respective ages.

Alexander the Great- finely carved ebony chess pieces.

Here's a number of individual pieces:

 

 A delicately carved elephant chess piece.  The horse chess piece is carved out of a single piece of wood and attached to the base.  The camel chess piece carved in boxwood.


The base diameter of the largest piece, Alexander, is 1 7/8" and all pieces have felt slides. These chess pieces are supplied in a sturdy cardboard box, so all the value is in the pieces.

As with most decoration sets, including this one the chessboard is available as a separate purchase.

a special addition to his/her collection

- 4/28/2009

"Although slightly different from the chess set pictured, the chess set I received is beautifully carved. The chess pieces are unique and not the result of an assembly line production. They were packed carefully and arrived in excellent condition. I am very pleased with the chess set and would highly recommend it anyone seeking a special addition to his/her collection.
