Just like the Medioevale Stile chess board appealed to collectors everywhere, the Endangered Parrots of the World Chess Set is sure to appeal to environmentalists and nature lovers. Grant Dawson Collections have created this environmentally friendly chess set in the United States. The one-of-a-kind chess set is hand made from certified sustainable North American hardwoods (walnut and maple), food-safe natural finishes with recycled glass ball feet. It features 32 lead-free pewter playing pieces finished in 24k gold or sterling silver. The board is finished with a gold-plated Laelia xanthina orchid border, which is an endangered orchid. All the unique pieces sit beautifully inside the box for easy storage and transportation.
