Details

Richly veined marble adds a translucent contrast to deep rose marble and sleek black onyx. The three varied tones of natural stone unite in a colorful table game by the Sierra Family. Beautiful and unusual, it makes a wonderful gift.

The playing board is created from selected pieces of sectioned marble and onyx slabs. First they are cut with a diamond disk. At this stage, the disk is cooled with water so that the stone will not shatter. The design is then perfected with files before the pieces are polished to a glowing sheen. "For us, it is very important to give our clients the best in quality and originality, transforming stone into functional products - whether for diversion or decoration," Mireya Sierra tells us.

Stone sculpting is a traditional regional handicraft, and the Sierras are famous for the skill and the quality of their work. Because each piece is sculpted individually, there may exist slight variations in the color and grain pattern of the stone. The set includes 60 colored glass marbles.

"Beautiful Chinese Checker set"

I bought this gift for an elderly relative who had dreamed her entire life of having a nice Chinese Checker set of her own. This set certainly for the bill. She was thrilled and said it was what she had dreamed of as a child.

"Work of art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This bowl is larger than I thought and it is a work of art unto itself. I would not put anything rough in it because then you would not see the beauty of the lines in the material. It is well carved and smooth, worthy of an honored place. It is so much more than a catch all...
