Series: Be Real

PLAYTIME is a hand-crafted chess set that serves as a tribute to womanhood, depicting feminine strength and beauty. Each piece aligns with a traditional set—with a twist: Taslitz’s design uses eggs, an ancient symbol of femininity, as pawns, and a dominant queen. The chess pieces comprise polished bronze with a glossy lacquer and blackened bronze with a matte lacquer finish. The board is made of ebonized solid oak, a waxed oak finish, and polished bronze “feet” on the four corners. PLAYTIME has museum-quality assemblage, with no visible hardware. The set comes with custom fabric pouches for each piece. This is a limited edition of 50 sets with each signed by Taslitz. Price available upon request.
