Jean Puiforcat Chess Set


The only detriment to the Art Deco chess set designed by Jean Puiforcat in 1927 is that with such gorgeous pieces, concentration levels are bound to falter. This kind of distraction was not the case for the masterful team of artisans tasked to complete the sets in the Puiforcat workshop—each one takes 200 hours of meticulous construction of sterling silver, ivory and Makassar ebony into a tabletop collection of veritable strategy-bound sculptures. Allow 10 months for completion and delivery.
