Maharajahs, their advisers, and support guard face off in this theme set from the land of India! Bright colors, characteristic dress, and authentic weapons display some fine qualities from this remarkable chess set. The Maharajah rides in his awning covered booth atop his war elephant, and advisers surround him, likewise mounted on war elephants. The knights are nobly mounted sword bearing officers, probably the honor guard to the rajah.

Rounding out the rear ranks with the rooks, there are the unusual camel-mounted soldiers, providing the quick support to where it is needed! And, not to be disregarded, the rifle armed front ranks show a discipline and determination to face and beat all odds!

From a period of transition in the land of India, this set comes from the time after the British influence was felt, yet far before modern times. The British influence is seen in the weapons and attire of the men. Rifles and uniforms with a slight European flair denote a foreign guidance in the warfare dress and equipment. Yet the elephants speak of the times of ancient India, when the power on the battlefield was without a doubt the giant elephant.

The red chessmen have brilliant colors and small headgear of blue to finish the touch, while in opposition, the blue soldiers have navy blue uniforms, plus headgear of red for a dash of color on top!

These finely made chess sets are made of poly-resin plastic. Each piece is hand-painted using long lasting, lead-free paint. These pieces are not recommended for children below 10 years of age since they will break if dropped or played with roughly.

Specifications:

  • Pieces: plastic resin, hand painted, and non-weighted.
  • King size: 4" tall, 2" base.
  • Pieces only. Chessboard not included.
  • Set weighs 5.33 pounds.
