Send your pawns onto a beautifully crafted battlefield with this intricate tagua set, handmade by artisans in Ecuador. Considered a humane alternative to ivory, the tagua nut is highlighted by its smooth surface and lustrous finish. In this handsome set, artisans carve charming marine animals to represent your rooks, bishops, knights, pawns, kings, and queens. Sweet carved turtle pawns guard a tusked walrus king, while full-mouthed pelican rooks handle the corners. The wooden board opens to stow your all-natural menagerie once the game has been won. Handmade in Ecuador.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Carved Tagua Chess Set:

        I purchased this as an anniversary gift for my husband (a marine biologist). He was blown away at the intricacy and uniqueness of the chess pieces. We had been looking for a nice chess board for a while and this was the perfect one for us! A couple of the pieces did come out of the box with broken tails and tusks, however a little gorilla glue was able to fix it.
