CHICAGO ARCHITECTURE


It was in Chicago that the sky scraper was born. And it was here that some of our nationís most influential architects began their careers and refined the styles that would make them famous. Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan and the Burnham Brothers all contributed to the rich architectural variety of Chicago, from the soaring commercial structures of the loop to a host of distinctive residential neighborhoods.

This handsome chess set celebrates that rich heritage. Handcrafted of exotic woods, each playing piece is unique. The back row pieces each recreate an important part of the cityís famous skyline, while individual pawns represent the varied residential architectural styles. A felt-lined divided drawer beneath the chess board provides safe storage for the entire set.
