Spain. This set is made of a material that looks like crushed stone or marble that has been bounded in some way. The surface feels rough.

Spain. This spooky resin chess set was bought in Barcelona in 2002. The label under the board says "Ajedrez Family Horror", but it is also known as "Halloween". The label has a "TACHI" logo (not found on internet), a postcode in Rubi near Barcelona and states "made in China". Possibly the set is designed by Paolo-Chiari, a home decoration company in Florence, Italy. On their site (www.paolochiari.net) it is listed as "Scacchi Vampiri vs Streghe" (Vampires vs Witches).
