This Chess Set is so unique, you will never find anything like it elsewhere. It is entirely made of metal pipe fittings from a local hardware store. The pieces are individually designed. The base of each piece is 1 inch and the heights vary from 2 inches all the way to 6 inches. The board is made out of an amazing quality Brazilian Slate mosaics. The base of the board is an 18 inches by 18 inches tile. Very creative, very unique, and really ONE of a kind.
