The high-gloss lacquer finish provides additional richness and depth to the designs and ensures that each heirloom game box will be treasured by future generations. As exquisitely finished inside as out. A brass key locks the compartmented storage area under the hinged lid. Each chess piece is made of solid wood and has a felt bottom.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
