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.

    La tela presenta due piccoli graffi che non erano visibili dalle foto, anche se era stato specificato che il quadro presentava i segni del tempo. Comunque un bell'oggetto, cornice stupenda.

    No hay manipulación. En la descripción pone claramente que el tablero es de exposición y no se incluye.
    La crítica es injusta.

    Comentario muy injusto porque no depende de nosotros el tránsito del pedido. En Navidad las empresas de envíos están saturadas y muchos de los artículos se retrasan considerablemente. De todos modos se le ofrece al cliente la devolución del envio por el retraso y no contesta.

    Nice product. Pity that the frame was a bit damaged which was not clear from the pictures.
    Not a big issue, if I had known I would have bought them anyways, but better to show a close up

  • Die Ikone ist wunderschön.
    Leider war sie nicht gut verpackt und unten links waren 2 Stücke abgegangen. Ich habe sie in der Verpackung liegend gefunden und
    wieder angeklebt. Retuschierung nötig.

  • Bad experience. I bought 2 chess sets, one of them arrived with all the pieces chipped and one knight broken. I sent photos to the seller. The response to my complaint was very rude.

    No entendemos su crítica. Usted en ningún momento se ha puesto en contacto con nosotros por ningún tema relacionado con el envío o la rotura de las piezas. Creo que se está confundiendo de vendedor. Rogamos compruebe su perfil.
