Our Gardener's Chess Set is the perfect set to keep in a favorite quiet, shady spot in your yard. Cast in solid stone from original sculpts by artist Michael Gentilucci, this charming set can live outdoors year 'round so you can enjoy a game whenever the mood strikes and the weather permits.
Each side is led by a king and queen, imagined as a portly gardener and his bride. They are supported by bouquets of flowers serving as bishops; gardening tools and buckets representing the strength of the knight; and what else but a pair of garden sheds to serve as castles? All are protected (at least initially) by sturdy pawns, imagined here as a mix of snails and turtles. What a hoot! This is far from a stodgy old chess set filled with stuffy kings, bishops and knights. Perfect for a game contested under a shady tree!
Hand crafted in solid cast stone by American artisans, each piece, as well as the board, has integrated coloring and is treated with a protective sealant for years of outdoor enjoyment.
