Many of the chess sets available on the International Chess Market are the Reproduction of those Chess Sets which were originally utilized by World Chess Champions in World Chess Tournaments held in the 19th and the 20th centuries.
These particular chess designs that were found suitable for world championships by the championship organizers, fascinate today's discerning chess players, chess hobbyists and chess collectors.
These designs being of old, are thought to be actual antique or distressed in look.
So there arose an urgent need of technical methods of reproducing the exact distressed look, and distressed antique look we at our manufacturing unit have successfully developed methods to accomplish the objective.
Distressed look on our chess sets is our new monopoly as we have been the first inventor of distressing technique.
Selling chess is an exciting business, and we wish prosperity to the entire chess selling community.
