GREECE

Your in-house Antiquarian will love this refined brass chess set that showcases art and architecture from the Greek Roman Era when Greece was dominated by the Roman Republic from 146 BC to 330 AD.  Hand sculpted and polished, the chessmen are gold and bronze with green patina that perfectly compliments the green on the brass chess board. Makes a thoughtful gift that invites parent and child to come together in play for generations to come.
