The thought behind this design was that the shapes and symbols of cubes, cylinders and balls should lead you move by move to checkmate.
The original Bauhaus design was sold in two versions, a "daily use" version and a hand-made "luxury" version.
Our design is a reproduction of the Handmade Luxury Version.
