Blind & Visually Impaired Staunton Chess Set

Our craftsmen from India have come up with an ingenious solution for those who are blind or visually impaired who wish to enjoy chess. This tactile wooden Staunton chess set has a unique board with the light squares set deep and the dark squares raised in order to allow one to navigate the board without "seeing" it with ones eyes. The chess pieces are pegged, fitting into the squares so they cannot be knocked over by feeling or handling. The dark pieces have spiked protrusions on their heads while the light pieces are rounded making them easily identifiable.

Hand carved from Sheesham Wood and Box Wood.

The large board measures 13" X 13" (33CM X 33CM)  and the small measures 10" X 10" (25CM X25CM)
