Details

Richly veined marble adds a translucent contrast to deep rose marble and sleek black onyx. The three varied tones of natural stone unite in a colorful table game by the Sierra Family. Beautiful and unusual, it makes a wonderful gift.

The playing board is created from selected pieces of sectioned marble and onyx slabs. First they are cut with a diamond disk. At this stage, the disk is cooled with water so that the stone will not shatter. The design is then perfected with files before the pieces are polished to a glowing sheen. "For us, it is very important to give our clients the best in quality and originality, transforming stone into functional products - whether for diversion or decoration," Mireya Sierra tells us.

Stone sculpting is a traditional regional handicraft, and the Sierras are famous for the skill and the quality of their work. Because each piece is sculpted individually, there may exist slight variations in the color and grain pattern of the stone. The set includes 60 colored glass marbles.

"Beautiful Chinese Checker set"

I bought this gift for an elderly relative who had dreamed her entire life of having a nice Chinese Checker set of her own. This set certainly for the bill. She was thrilled and said it was what she had dreamed of as a child.

"Absolutely perfect! Beautifully crafted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was looking for a chess set to replace a set that had been broken. We had purchased our original set whilst on holiday in Mexico back 2011. There is a slight colour variant to our original set but this is a perfect replacement to help me reminisce of such a happy time spent with my husband. And now I have a new set which I can now share with our children as well, teaching them how to play and making memories as a family. Thank you so much for this beautifully crafted set. The attention to detail is brilliant

I never thought tic-tac-toe could become a true piece of artwork--this set has the perfect weight and is achingly gorgeous in real life. A fun heirloom collectible for sure.

"Lovely piece or carved art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this small catchall for my car keys. I am so very happy with this lovely work of art. It is really delicate looking and so nicely carved. The colors are vibrant and I feel I might just have it on an end table as part of the decor. It is apx 6 1/2 inches long by 4 1/4 inches wide. I am very pleased, thank you.
