If you’re concerned about wildlife and intend to play your part in its conservation, you don’t just have to be a chivalrous campaigner of a wildlife program or part of a big wildlife protection organization. This is perhaps what the Grant Dawson Collections, designer of the Endangered Parrots of the World Chess Set, seems to illustrate to the world. Comprising 32 lead-free pewter playing pieces, finished in 24k gold or sterling silver or even hand painted, with recycled glass ball feet, the eco-friendly chess set is carved out of certified sustainable North American hardwoods (walnut and maple) which is adorned with a gold-plated Laelia xanthina orchid border.
Bringing luxury and sustainability together, which we don’t see go hand in hand too often, the evocative chess set not only presents a pleasing option for the lovers of the classic game of chess, but also creates awareness about the endangered birds by depicting them in its pieces and border. Available for $3,406, the chess set measures 14.625″ long x 4.125″ high and comes with a box for safe and easy storage as well as transportation of the precious pieces.
