Colors
I hand finish every piece, and can make them pretty much any color you want. I prefer modern chess white and black—although the "white" is antiqued to look like walrus ivory, and the  "black" is a very dark brown that feels more ancient, somehow.

On the original 12th-century Isle of Lewis pieces, one side is believed to have been stained red.
