The Barrister's Chess Set

This is the chess set that reassigns courtroom adversaries to the jurisprudence of the chessboard. The prosecution and the defense are represented by the iconic characters of law: The king of the courtroom is a bewigged judge with his queen, blind Lady Justice. Their bishops are attorneys clutching their legal briefs, flanked by the dour-faced bailiff knights, who cross their arms at the slightest rustle in the gallery. The rooks are stacks of gavel-topped books, and the pawns are a partial jury of eight seated deliberators. The unique board mimics the raised bench and jury box of a courtroom with starting position rows rising in two steps above the chamber floor. Pieces are handcrafted from cold-cast bronze, and the board is constructed of cold-cast bronze and Italian travertine tile. 5" H x 19" W x 18" D. (25 lbs.)
