Silver Spoon Sunday: Chess Set Carved From Buffalo Bone
Even if you don't play the game, an expensive chess set with a beautiful design can fill that empty little nook in the penthouse. It is especially nice when it is a great conversation starter because it has been carved out of buffalo bone. This Ambawari Collector set of chessmen is magnificently hand-carved by the finest artisans in India.
The pieces are the traditional animals of India -- elephants, camels, and horses, all in traditional royal attire. Traditional colors are used to bring each piece to life. The entire set comes in a protective box lined with silk and velvet for storage when not on display.
