Collector's Chess Set by the The Noble Collection
This rich, exquisite and yes "precious" Lord of the Rings Collector’s Chess Set contains a map of Middle-earth, which is mounted below the playing surface. The base contains images of the most memorable characters and scenes from the film. The board measures 15 by 15 by 4.5 inches. The top of the board is plexi-glass with the rest of the board made out of cold cast porcelain.
This has been placed on my wish list of unique and collectable gifts. An ideal gift for my husband, because it takes skill and patience to play. Patience in not a word in my vocabulary, but I would love to own this chess set for it’s beauty and fine crafted playing pieces.
This is a chess set that can be treasured for many generations.

It must be a sign that the Lord of the Rings lenses keep jumping out to me. My husband is a true Lord of the Rings fan. It would be awesome for him to have this and for us to have a great place to display it.
