Highest quality traditional chess sets & games
These fabulous items are reproductions of games that people used to exercise their minds in the days when ‘we maqde our own amusement’. Long before the advent of television, or even the movies, people for centuries had kept their brains agile and their wits keen by playing a variety of games such as chess, backgammon and other tests of skill.
These beautiful modern versions – all created from top quality materials in traditional styles – are available online from Franklin Mint and are wonderful decor items in their own right. They are reminiscent of the days when one would retire to the library after dinner, with a glass of vintage port, and, sitting in a leather chair by a roaring log fire, challenge friends and family. Play for fun, for pennies or for high stakes! Prices start at under $50.
