Lot Notes

Only by winning the game you can capture and savour all of your opponent's pieces: 32 marvelous recipients that can be filled with the translucent nuance of the drink, with flavours obtained from the best fruits, according to traditional recipes. If there is a rebate, the result will be amazing for both competitors!

A sober chess board made of varnished wood with a sumptuous chess game made of sandblasted glass support the 16 + 16 chess pieces.
