This premium chess set is the perfect gift for the Francophile in your life. The landmarks represented in each piece will take them to the banks of the Seine, as it snakes its way through Paris. The king is the Eiffel Tower, the queen is the Sacre Coeur Basilica, and the bishops are the famous Arc De Triomphe. Knights are represented by the modern art Centre Pompidou museum, while the rooks are symbolized by the I.M. Pei-designed Louvre pyramid. The pawns are Haussmann Buildings, typical 19th-century French apartment buildings. Choose from three board options: wooden black-and-white, wooden Paris city map, or Carrara marble. Each set comes in a beautifully designed presentation and storage box.
