These pieces are profoundly original and are a chess collection rarely seen anywhere in the world. First, these Barley Corn Carved Camel Bone Chess Pieces come from an ethical source where the animals have died from natural causes. The design of each piece is based on ancient eastern motifs, adding to the series' adventurous, almost mythological feel. The set also has an undoubtedly regal characteristic, illustrated best by the tall, elegant 4-inch king.
In fact, the king can be made smaller by unscrewing the top half, revealing a small space to fill with precious items. There is no question that this set, with its eye-catching looks, is as ornamental as it is practical. What is less obvious is that they are robust, heavy pieces because of the excellent material they are created from.
We have some beautiful boards that complement this set and recommend you purchase one of at least 18 inches (45 cm).
