Tired of the same boring variations on the Staunton design? Looking for something original a new paradigm perhaps? Then here is a refreshing new approach to brighten your chessic landscape. Meet the Avant Garde Chessmen from the Camaratta Signature Series. With their graceful, up-swept stems, piece-to-piece design consistency, mold-breaking Knights and a radical new King’s finial, these pieces make a statement like no other set of chessmen can.
To cater to your creative side, two Knight styles and three interchangeable Kings’ finials are included. One steed is a variation on the more classic Knight, the other is simply a step beyond. Then there are those Kings finials. Apart from the more traditional Formee cross and Eastern ball finials, here is an entirely new concept, a fountain flowing gracefully into a Maltese cross.
