Greek Deity Chessmen
Offered here is a superb set of Greek Deity Chessmen crafted from natural and stained ivory-colored crushed stone composite. Each of the chess pieces is original sculpture, meticulously hand crafted and felted. The chessmen were inspired by Gods of Ancient Greece. The King stands 3-7/8″ inches Tall with a 1-1/4″ base. The bishop is considerably taller. The set of Greek Deity Chessmen is complete. The chessmen are as new.
