Product Description

This set of three double moulds which cast the six pieces required to make a complete chess set side: King, Queen, Bishop, knight, Rook, Pawn. You will require about 18 bars of metal to complete a full chess set. This is the list of paints recommended to use for this chess set.

The Field of the Cloth of Gold

The Field of the Cloth of Gold took place in June 1520, near Guisnes in France. The jousting and feasting, the colour and glitter, the tents and trappings dazzled all of Europe. It was described as a display of medieval chivalry at which King Henry VIII of England crossed the Channel to joust with the new French King, Frances I. Henry attempted to outdo Francis both by the splendour of his equipment, the cunning of his diplomacy and even his physical strength.

At the Field of the Cloth of Gold, Henry suddenly challenged Francis to a wrestling match. Francis seized Henry in a lightning grip and threw him to the ground. Henry went white with embarrassment, but held back his temper. The ceremonies continued, but Henry could not forgive such a personal humiliation. Any chance for co-operative friendship dissipated with this incident. Indeed, Henry had already began negotiations with Francis's enemy (Holy Roman) Emperor Charles V. Within a month, Charles declared war on France, with Henry in support.
