Chess Set KnightMedieval War Table and Chess SetIf I had a friend with gothic tastes who was a superfiend for the game of chess — and if I had a very deep pocket for buying gifts — I’d have to run-not-walk on over to Elizabeth Gann Chess Sets and snap up the Medieval War Table.

Just look at all the bronze-and-gilt curlicues, shining onyx, and the beautiful mossy green velvet of the stools… And those foot-tall chess pieces look like medieval fantasy action figures!

Not a chess table but a War Table… big enough to contain an immense field of battle so that both Kings can take the measure of his or her opponent in a setting fit for this Royal Game.

No surprise that this is a limited edition design — each set of table and chess men takes two months to craft and complete.
