At the time of King George III's coronation in 1760 the British were the pre-eminent power on the North American sub-continent. They had a difficult time persuading the colonists of the territory to pay taxes to the British Crown and as a result outbreaks of violence occurred which eventually escalated into full scale war between Britain and its North American colony.
The sculptor and artists have taken some of the principal characters from the era to create this superb chess set. Shown here in its hand decorated form the historically authentic hand crafted pieces will enable you to re-live some of the major battles and engagements and, perhaps.. who knows? Can you alter the course of history?
