User Rating: / 0
Articles | Energy Future

The famous War of 1812 is extremely significant in the history of the United States and the Britain. But what does it has to do with a chess set? The crazy Etsy designer Jim Arnolds has shaped a huge chess set representing the war. Named the War of 1812 Chess Set, it is a handicraft custom designed wooden chess set with a large chessboard that boards the U.S. navy ship the Constitution versus the U.K’s Guerierre at both ends.

War of 1812 Chess Set

War of 1812 Chess Set

The chess set is made of solid maple and walnut trees. The board alone has a huge weight of 50 pounds and it stretches 36 square inches. There is a small re-enactment of the U.S’ first sea victory on top of the quadrilateral map of chess set. All parts and elements of the chess set that has guarding cannons at its four ends are meant to recollect the memory of the historic war.

War of 1812 Chess Set

Carved from solid walnut and maple, the chess board alone weighs 50 pounds, and spans 36 square inches.

Each chessman on the board represents the war of 1812 in interesting ways. The kings represent the ship captains, queens the lieutenants, bishops the mid-shipmen, the knights the gunners’ mates, rooks the cannon balls and pawns the deck side cannons. Well, all pieces are there with authentic representations of ancient period’s uniforms and war robes.

Of course, there will be nothing like this chess set anywhere. Jim Arnolds sells the massive War of 1812 Chess set for a whopping price of $3,800. The designer has been specialized in developing the most unique and handcraft wood-based designs. This War of 1812 Chess Set will be a feather in the cap of the famous designer.
