Famous lighthouses from Maine to Georgia and throughout the Great Lakes all vie for your attention in this truly historical theme chess set! With all lighthouses now converted to automation and lighthouse keepers no longer necessary, a wonderful era in the American shipping industry has passed on, and this theme chess set is an excellent commemorative of that great time!

Cape Hatteras, Massachusetts Bay, each lighthouse comes to you in elegant detail in this theme chess set, and all await the handshake to start something they never did throughout history...move! Move they do and give you a thrilling chess game that nearly has the smell of the ocean and the look of the sea all at the same time.

Lighthouses have been famous throughout history, and the most famous example is the Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt. Started by Alexander the Great, Ptolomy Soter, the new ruler of Egypt after Alexander's untimely death, continued the building. The lighthouse was finished close to 270 B.C. When it was completed, the lighthouse was close to 500 feet in height, and reports estimated the light to be seen from 100 miles! Finally succumbing to earthquakes, the lighthouse of Pharos remains the greatest lighthouse of all time.

  • King size: 3-1/4"tall, 1-1/8" bases.

  • Set weighs 3.75 pounds.
