Each figure in this chess set was inspired by the history of a Life Insurance company who’s original dated back to 17th century England. Each figure was meticulously sculpted and then cast from pewter, with half of the pieces painted black, and the other half with an antique pewter finish. The board was custom made from maple, with built in drawers and die cast areas to hold each chess piece in place when not in use. The surface of the board was fabricated from Jade glass and frosted with the chessboard pattern. A small pewter medallion of the client’s logo was permanently affixed to the front edge of the board.
