This listing is for a brand new Kama Sutra chess set based on the ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behaviour in Sanskrit literature written by Vātsyāyana.
Beautifully detailed and depicting many of the famous illustrations from the text this is perfect gift for the more discerning chess set collector and is most certainly a talking point! These sets are quite rare on the internet and they don't come with two extra queens as this one does
This set for comes with two extra queens for those of you who are lucky enough to get a pawn all the way down to the other end of the board and don't want to scrabble around looking for something to use as an extra queen.
Each set is hand cast in a hard and durable natural mineral giving a lovely carved stone like feel, painted, stained and lacquered to give a durable high quality result yet still retaining a certain ceramic and antique finish. They also all have hand cut soft felt bottoms, lucky things!
Unless you specify otherwise the colours for these pieces are Jet Black for the dark and Mellow Ivory for the light. If you would prefer Antique Red or Deep Walnut instead of the Black, or the Ivory, then just let me know and I'll be more than happy to oblige.... In fact, you can mix and match any of these colours if you like. If you'd like any colours that aren't listed here then let me know before you purchase and I'm sure I'd be able to accommodate you.
The king is 5 inches in height and the set, unpacked, weighs approx 2 KG and would suit a board with squares 1.5 inches or more.
Vinyl Chess Mat:
This set also comes with an optional vinyl chess mat/board so you can start playing as soon as you receive it. This is a black and white mat with 2 inch squares and is tough, durable and wipe clean.
If you would like this option then simply select it when purchasing.
Each piece is individually wrapped in bubble wrap and then the whole set. This is then packed in a sturdy cardboard box into which is packed polystyrene peanuts for extra padding.
And don't forget, you can create your own bespoke set put together using any of the pieces from any of the sets in my shop in any colours you like. A real mix and match. So, for example, if you would like an Isle of Lewis set but prefer the King from a different set and/or the pawns from another set then that's no problem. As long as I currently make the pieces you can create whatever set you like. Simply request a custom order with your requirements and I'll do my best to accommodate. ☺
