Marcus Antonius (83 BC- 30 BC), known in English as Mark Antony or Anthony

A Sublime masterpiece created the concept of the renowned Artist, Avtarjeet Dhanjal- who commissioned these extremely intricate works of sculpture. Hand-carved and turned using the finest graded boxwood and the extremely scarce exotic timber, sandalwood. This highly collectable chess set is a limited edition from a run hand-carved in the year 2007.  

The inspiration for this unique Chess-set came from a hero of Italian history known for his heroism and his love affair with the legendary Queen Cleopatra of Egypt, the design of the coins would remind you of the colonnade of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.

Mark Antony, was a Roman politician and general. He was an important supporter and a loyal friend of Julius Caesar. After Caesar's death in October 41 BC, Antony invited Cleopatra the queen of Egypt to visit him; they formed an Alliance and became lovers. Later their love affair became the subject of many European plays, poems, and paintings. 

This unique set has a king size of 4" and is presented in a twin-tier suede-lined box

23-inch large hand-made ebony maple and acacia chessboard

In the realm of hand-carved products, it's essential to acknowledge that the artistry involved in crafting chess pieces and related items by hand can lead to unique variations. The use of wood, being a natural material, inherently results in differences in color, shade, and tone.

Furthermore, please keep in mind that the hand-carving process may introduce subtle differences between individual pieces within a set, adding to their individual character.

Additionally, for transparency, we want to clarify that the use of veneer is exclusive to our chess boards and boxes. All other items, including chess pieces and related accessories, are crafted from solid wood unless explicitly stated otherwise in our listings. This distinction is made to ensure compliance with CITES regulations governing lumber species while maintaining the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of our hand-carved products.

Hand-Carved Products Disclaimer:

  • Variations in Wood: Due to the natural and inconsistent nature of wood, expect variations in color, wood tones, shade, and tone.
  • Artistic Hand-Carving: Hand-carved products may exhibit subtle differences between individual pieces, enhancing their unique character and wood variance.
  • Approximate Weights and Sizes: Provided weights and sizes are approximate guides, considering the handmade nature of our products.
  • Chess Boards and Boxes: Unless explicitly labeled as "solid wood," chess boards and boxes are made with veneer to comply with CITES regulations. Other items are crafted from solid wood for quality and compliance.
