Marble Chess Sets

From the 6th Century when the game of chess was invented along the border country of Persia and Afghanistan the game of chess has conquered the world of board games. After being introduced to Europe in the 9th Century by traders retuning from the Middle East, it has since become the most popular board game in the world, played everywhere from the Afghan to the glittering heights of the World Chess Championships. Across the globe craftsmen and artisans have used many kinds of exotic locally grown materials to make chess pieces, but none are as beautiful or elegant as those chess sets hand made from pure marble.
