High in the mystic Carpathian Mountains of Europe, home of the Dragon and the vampire myths, are found master artisans that draw deep from a wellspring of history dating back centuries, honoring the finest traditions in wood carving. ChessCentral is proud to offer from these gifted craftsmen the Carpathian Collection – this chess set is named The Jarilo after the the mythological deity Jarilo, the War God.
These unique and handsomely designed chess pieces are made of Hornbeam and Sycamore, beautiful woods found in the forests of Europe. Hornbeam (sometimes known as Ironwood) is mostly white and used for intricate and decorative carvings. Sycamore offers a dark brown, smooth textured wood, perfect for the dark pieces. These woods, coupled with the craftsmanship of the Carpathian artisans, make for one of the finest moderately priced chess sets available in the marketplace.
The folding chess board is 21.75″x 21.75″ (21.75″ x 11″ x 2.5″” when folded) and decorated on the borders for display at home or in the office. When folded, the chess board makes a storage compartment for the chess pieces, and is lined with green felt. The stylish board is made from beach and birch wood with nicely carved letters and numbers on the side, reminding you where the pieces go when following a chess game. Brass hinges complete the outside for easy closure.
