Premium Chess Set "River of Time
Vendor code: 1047-3
The "River of Time" chess set is made of noble materials. Black jade is opposed to opaque snow-white opal cacholong. They create a contrasting checkerboard pattern in the centre of an elegant wenge chess table. The board is framed with metal plates with scenes of gladiatorial, musketeer and duel fights, using the technique of Zlatoust engraving with traditional and strictly defined colours – gilding, silvering, nickel plating and blackening. Each plate is decorated with cubic zirconia along the outer contour. The chess pieces are made using the technique of combining metal and stone: masterfully made frames of gilded metal decorated with cubic zirconia seem to protect the sacred cacholong and jade.
