Each individual piece is cast by hand in a solid crushed stone resin with metal powder added, giving weight to the pieces and a unique architectural aesthetic. In our London set Pawns are terraced houses, Big Ben is the Rook, with the London Eye playing the Knight. 30 St. Mary Axe is cast as the Bishop, and the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the Queen. No other building than Canary Wharf would be better suited to play the King, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall. Each set comes complete with a screen-printed wooden map board and presentation box.
