Exceptional chess set, composed of a golden embossed leather board, entirely handmade and original Mokarex collectible pieces dating from 1961, patinated for the occasion...

This chessboard of approximately 45.5X45,5cm is a "Gothic flamboyant" inspired art piece, typical of the 15th century...
Squares gilded with a brush (metallic pigments) with a fine rosette design, alternate with squares carved diagonally and patinated in shades of aged brown, on a black relief frame which enhances the contrast...

This sheet of leather, in a single piece (it is in no way a mosaic or patchwork!) is all glued to a piece of 15mm thick plywood, enhanced with a frieze of leather rosettes, worked with the same way.

At the corners, 4 renovated "Daisies" upholstery nails, in copper-plated brass, from neo-Gothic furniture from the beginning of the 20th century, highlight the whole and the 4 decorative paw-shaped feet.

The pieces are authentic collectible Mokarex, from 1961 (not a reissue), dedicated to the court of King Louis XI and the Duke of Burgundy Charles the Bold.
They measure approximately 9cm high, and each pawn is a different soldier from the period army corps: crossbowman, culverinier, halberdier, archer, etc...
The richness of the details of each piece is highlighted by a delicate painting work done with special figurine acrylic from the brand "The army painter", and varnished.
Their base has a leather disc with our logo to facilitate their sliding on the tray...

Whether to decorate a charming room, or to indulge in epic games, this unique game will transport you...

More than 70 hours of meticulous work were necessary to develop it.

This is the major piece of the workshop for 2024
