The Canterbury Cathedral Handpainted Chess Set
Click to enlarge image(s)
The city of Canterbury has been a place of Christian worship for nearly two thousand years. Following a major fire at the original cathedral in 1174, the monks at Canterbury used the revenue from the many pilgrims visiting the shrine and relics of St Thomas to create the first Gothic cathedral in England . The rebuilding and reconstruction continued during the following century and ensured that at the end of the Middle Ages, Canterbury Cathedral was one of the noblest churches in Christendom.

The skilled designers and sculptors of Studio Anne Carlton have created from the architecture and statuary in and around Canterbury Cathedral a chess set of gracious proportions and great detail.

ALL STUDIO ANNE CARLTON CHESSMEN ARE MADE FROM POLYRESIN, WHICH IS A CRUSHED STONE COMPOSITE. IT HAS THE LOOK, FEEL AND WEIGHT OF STONE, BUT THE DURABILITY OF A PLASTIC, MAKING IT THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
