The Apollo is a masterpiece of Indian chess manufacturing and one of our most gorgeous luxury designs. Every single detail in this series of Staunton chessmen has been meticulously designed – and fabricated by hand by some of the most skilled and distinguished chess artisans in the world.
The pieces are heavily weighted for optimal balance and control for players. Despite this, they are ornamented in a very elegant way and the design has a feeling of lightness.
There is something special to be found in every single piece. The knight is a work of art in its own right. The mitre of the bishop, the collars of the pawns and the striking, unique finial of the king are only a few examples of the superb designing and manufacturing found throughout the set. Also a traditional king’s cross is included in the set, so you can choose or alternate between them.
Made from first class hardwoods – and offered with both lacquered and unlacquered finish – the Apollo chessmen will last from generation to generation. Available on a very limited basis.
