A highly collectable hand-blown chess set, designed by Peter Layton, with a goatskin and vellum board.
Using this set is a wonderful visual and tactile experience.
Early in 2011, Peter was urged, by both his team and his collectors, to release some of the experimental test pieces that he has kept over the past 30 years. These pieces were archived due to some inherent quality that he particularly enjoyed – a magical colour, pattern or an especially pleasing form. Peter is sorry to part with some of these but feels it is the right time to let others enjoy them.
