This MegaChess Fiberglass Chess Set with a 48" King is a scaled down version of our beautiful 72" Fiberglass Chess Set. It is one of the finest chess life-size chess sets in the world. (We also make the other - our Teak Chess Set with a 72" King!) When only the top-of-the-line will do, this is the chess set with no peer. This 48" chess set, made of fiberglass, is quite dramatic in its presentation, whether located in an expansive yard, house terrace, foyer, and even a large room with this as its central attraction.
The set is a molded fiberglass and resin with the design of the traditional Staunton style that is familiar to all chess players. The artistry of the knight makes that the center of attention of this larger-than-life-size chess set.
The set is made of durable, lightweight Fiberglass and Resin material. The King weighs 16 pounds and can easily be picked up by a child. Unlike our 72" FIberglass Chess Set, the base of this set is sealed and covered with a protective rubber plate. Beautiful, handcrafted chess set would be a perfect addition to a backyard, resort or corporate setting.
This chess set - the second largest standard size we produce - has a 48" (4' tall) king. It is most often used for outdoor decoration, but can also be used for indoor decor. Imagine the impact on guests walking in to see these stunning, larger-than-life-size chess figures. Picture them walking among the pieces, looking up at the cross on the king. And consider more than size. Run your fingers along fiberglass' smooth contours, and you will own an art form that has inspired kings and queens.
This set is very similar to our smaller chess sets with a Staunton design. MegaChess 48" Fiberglass Chess Sets are superior to any made in the world for the following reasons;
- The large fiberglass chess set is manufactured by some of the finest craftsman in the world.
- Our signature piece in this set is the Knight. The beauty of this Knight brings back memories of the horses on a carousel.
- These lightweight pieces are reinforced with a protective Gel Coat finish to protect and enhance the chess pieces beauty.
32 Beautifully hand-crafted chess pieces with the light side in white and the dark side a high gloss black.
When planning a playing area, consider the minimum size of the square of a chessboard as the diameter of the base of the king (21.5"). Optimum would be 24" squares, which is also a standard for tile sizes (sometimes made up of four 12" tiles), yielding a chessboard 16' on each side.
To transport the entire MF72 chess set, plan on one full-size pickup truck or equivalent. The best approach is to lay the major pieces on their sides with padding.
Our Chess Sets are featured around the globe in some of the most exquisite resorts, country clubs, corporate settings, and backyards.
