There are few things in life as universally enjoyed as a good game of chess. Friends play it, enemies play it, computers play it - there are even legends of great players challenging Death in a bid to win more time. A game held in such high esteem should be as beautiful as it is famous, and the Brown Counsul Chess Set is one of the most beautiful we've seen. With a wooden board and pieces set in rich brown and ivory beige, the Brown Counsul Chess Set will make you feel like a king. Exquisite carvings line the borders, and contrasting details emphasize the royal pieces. The Brown Counsul Chess Set is also very large - the board measures 19"x19" when folded out, with 3 3/4" kings. The board folds up to store the pieces in felt-lined compartments.
