The Battle of Trafalgar Chess set commemorates one of the most decisive naval battles ever fought, using highly detailed quality Chess figures. In the course of a short October afternoon, the Combined Fleet of France and Spain, with 33 battleships, was defeated by a British force of 27 battleships off cape Trafalgar, on the south-west coast of Spain. The Trafalgar set of chess pieces is dedicated to the memory of all those who fought with Nelson, and against him, in a battle where every individual appeared a hero - according to Vice Admiral Collingwood.
The regular Chess set is made from ground stone resin and comes in contrasting brown and ivory shades so that opposing pieces are easily distinguished. In the decorated version of the Chess set the clothing, weaponry and accessories have all been painstakingly hand-painted.
