Greece  (Europe)

Greece. Actually I didn't know much of these chess sets, until I found (and bought) one in original box in autumn 2019. So now I have prove it is Greek and made by Metalotehniki in Athens.

  • Greece
  • 1982
  • Metal K 4.2; p 2.9

Greece. This set is still for sale today. This is what is stated at the Manopoulos side about this set: "This period was characterized by fierce local as well as international wars. The aggressiveness of the Pawn and the Knight fully represent the ferocity of these wars. The posture of the King and Queen indicates their unquestionable leadership. The Bishop reveals his consideration for the movements of the imminent battle. Finally, the Castle is a reproduction of a pillar which characterized the architectural style during that period."
