This crystal chess set represents the ultimate in class and quality. Each brilliant piece has been hand crafted, cut and polished to unyielding specifications.
This set was made in Austria between 1984 and 2007 and has been retired by the company. It was designed by Max Schreck, master designer for Swarovski. Originally it was called "Game of Kings" and later the set was moved to the "Crystal Classics" line of products.
The chess board is heavy glass mirror polished and ground and etched to delineate squares. The set comes with the original smooth leather carrying case which unfortunately is a bit scuffed up. Functionally, the case is fine and very stable, but the leather has small tears and scuff marks. The outer shipping box also comes with the set. The chess pieces, and the board are in immaculate condition. For reference, the King and Queen are about 1 & 3/4 inches tall....Pawns about 1 inch tall. This is really a lovely set.
