An Array of Colours and Designs
The Alabaster chess sets are available in range of colours. We have chosen to carry the most popular - red, brown and the standard black and white. The brown set tops a finely crafted wooden case that holds the pieces individually when not in use. A set of checkers (draughts) is also included in each set. These sets are superb example of beauty and quality in one. As Canada’s most prominent chess set retailer we are quite excited to be stocking these unique sets.
