Hand Painted Battle of Trafalgar Chess Set

Regular price £500.00 £500.00 Sale

Our beautiful and artistic chess set of the Battle of Trafalgar marks one of the most famous engagements in British naval history. During a short October afternoon the British fleet of 27 ships defeated the combined Franco-Spanish fleet of 33 ships at Trafalgar. The victory stopped the threat of invasion and cemented the Royal Navies place as the dominate force on the oceans.

These chess pieces are authentic reproductions of the characters, clothing and equipment of the era. Pieces include Nelson and Villeneuve as the king pieces, humble sailors as pawns and ships of the lines as the castle/rook pieces. Each piece is made and hand painted in the UK. The king piece is 5" high (12.7cm).

Please note these items are delivered direct from the manufacturer. International shipping is available. 

This is for the pieces only, the chess board is not included.
