Brass Chess Sets

Submitted by on December 26, 2013 – 10:16 pm

Brass is also commonly used. It's a dense alloy of copper and zinc with a yellowish color in its natural state. Brass is also generally resistant to tarnishing. In a brass set the lighter pieces may be provided silver finish.

There are a few advantages to using brass over other materials like wood. One immediate advantage is that using a brass table gives you a very strong base from which to display heavy items that you may not want to display on a surface such as wood, which could be more easily damaged by scratching, denting, and breakage.

Another advantage is that brass acquires a patina over the years, which actually protects the brass against corrosion. The patina that brass acquires over the years makes it very desirable to antique dealers and collectors.

Throughout history, people have been working with brass and creating beautiful pieces of art with the material.

Brass tends to last a long time and cannot only be beautiful works of art, but quite functional as well. Brass also tend to be lighter than other metals such as iron and thus easier to move.

The level of craftsmanship that many brass workers exhibited when designing and building chess sets and pieces is awesome and they are true works of art.
