Mini African Animal Chess Set

Overview

Grab your piece of the African Animal Kingdom with this miniature chess set, themed with some of the animals Africa is most proud to call its own.

Introduction

This unique, rare  African Themed Chess Set forms part of our “miniature” series, for the player who prefers a smaller board. Each piece captures Africa’s enchanting animal, perched, ready upon their rock, just as one would expect from beasts that are amongst the most respected and treasured in the wilds of our world.
The most sedulous attention to detail brings realism to each tiny aspect of our Miniature African Animal themed chess pieces. From the grand mane of our lion, the unique spots of our leopard, the curled horns of our buffalo, the cheeky smirk of the baboon, to the mysterious stripes of our zebra, every hand-moulded chess piece will make your chess game seem as though it takes place right at the core of the enchanting African Wild. All atop a Kiat, Kota and maple wood board, perfectly framed in etched ground-stone.
All the pieces in this unique chess set were, sculptured in-house, produced from custom made, hand-designed moulds, followed up with hours of the finest attention in hand-painted colouring, with a focus on intricate detail, to give realism to this African Animal themed chess set. The tallest chess piece in the collection is the uncontested Lion, sitting in leisurely, 56mm tall, with all the chess pieces having a base diameter of between 26-34mm. This fits perfectly on the 50mm2 chess squares on our ground stone chess board. As always, great care has been taken to neatly and securely package the 4kg chess set to prevent damage while transporting or storing.
