The poorest chess in the world. Esparto. Anantapur, C. 1970

The proceeds of this chess will be donated to the Vicente Ferrer Foundation.

A charity chess designed by Vicente Ferrer for his Foundation to help fight poverty in Anantapur (India) 1970. It is considered the poorest chess in the world for its unique material: esparto, symbol of poverty and oppression of the poor. (This material already appeared in Oliver Twist, the Dickens novel, as an example of exploitation of children in the 19th century)

This unique collector’s and Museum chess was naturally made using rope of esparto. Each piece is a handcrafted work to balance the weight and height. Please admire their original horses. The same material was used for the board, a real beauty in its primitive and craft forms.
It also includes an exhibitor for the pieces and the board.
Approximate dimensions: The board is 45 x 45 cm; pieces: The King is 7 cm
Registered shipping and well packed.

    Ce n'était pas précisé dans la description ou une photo montrant ce défaut.
