Themed chess sets
Beautiful hand-painted, premium themed chess sets.
For more than 25 years, we have produced a range of themed chess sets for both retail and corporate customers worldwide. Our range of 14 chess sets accommodates a variety of tastes and budgetary needs, consistently generating sales and producing satisfied customers.
Our production process
Our high-quality polystone chess pieces are designed and hand-sculpted by our team of talented South African artists, then hand-cast and intricately painted using Windsor and Newton oil paints. The highly durable wooden boards are hand-cut and treated, encased in hand-designed moulded polystone frames. Each set takes approximately 9 hours to produce. Pieces are kept safe in their own compartments inside a foam holder. The board is wrapped in bubble wrap to absorb any jolting that occurs during shipping. The entire set is placed in a sturdy double-walled cardboard container, filled with polystyrene packing pieces to protect it while in transit.
