NOTE: THE MARBLE BOARD WILL BE AVAILABLE IN MARCH 2021
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. We’ve chosen a range of buildings from across the city, some of which capture the essence of the early 1900’s construction boom and the growth of skyscraper architecture, through to their more contemporary counterparts, along with some of the city’s most recognizable silhouettes: The pawns are played by the famous Painted Lady houses, St Mary’s Cathedral plays the Rook, with Columbus Tower playing the Knight. Coit Tower is cast as the Bishop, with Iconic Transamerica Pyramid playing the most powerful piece on the board, the Queen. The King is played by the recently completed Salesforce Tower. Each set comes with a choice of hand-screened printed wooden city map board, or hand-screened printed wooden hatch board, or an Italian Carrara marble board. and a presentation box.
