What a raw and clever concept for chess pieces by designer Peter Marigold. Being a lover of chess, I’d love to add a unique set like this to the growing collection.

“Different pieces of the branch are chosen to emphasise the character of each chess piece. For example the kings and queens have snooty upturned noses while the horses have long downturned snouts. The smaller pieces of the branch are used for pawns, while the larger pieces are used for more solid castles.”
