Sets of carved Chess

The Russian wooden hand made chess at the craft market "Vernisazh"
Russia is famous all over the world for its arts and souvenir crafts but especially for Russian crafts people. As to chess in tsarist (imperial) Russia playing chess was quite popular with noble and aristocratic people. It was a good manner to play chess and especially to own a very good hand crafted chess board and chess set. But most popular in Russia chess playing became in soviet times. Since then and now amateur and professional chess players prefer to play chess on a good chess board with good hand crafted chess pieces. They are the symbols of prosperity and respect to the opponent.

I am a single mother who just recently made my second trip to Russia to bring home my child. I took the advice of some fellow adoptees from Ireland who had recommended Arthur and his services. I was absolutely thrilled with the personal attention he provided. Arthur was able to take me to some local markets to pick up great souveniers at low prices, some must see tourist spots and even picked a popular spot for lunch that we enjoyed very much. On this trip it was just myself, another single mother and Arthur...I couldn't have felt any safer and enjoyed myself any more than I did in the company of Arthur. I would recommend his services to anyone who wants to get the most from their trip! Good job Arthur!
