HUNTSVILLE, AL 10/2/2017 /bluewireSMR/ — A beautiful chess set is a great family heirloom. Pass it from generation to generation and let it serve as a valued connection to your family’s past.
Every piece of history tells a story. Individuals pass treasured objects on to future generations for the same reasons museums display emblems of the past— cherished objects help us remember the past, learn about history and gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. They also lend tangibility to treasured memories. While there are many items that can be passed down, a beautiful handcrafted chess set will be cherished forever. Indeed, a chess set is an ideal heirloom for several reasons:
- Linkage to the past. Heirloom chess sets provide a feeling of connection or linkage to the past. Future generations can learn about their ancestors through the objects they inherit. Receiving the gift of a chess set from an ancestor is an opportunity to learn about them and their story. Learning about ancestors fosters a deeper connection to one’s past and can even boost happiness. Research shows that sharing and remembering happy memories cultivates contentment.
- Memories of loved ones. Chess sets that are passed down from generation to generation leave behind a way for progeny to remember and cherish loved ones. When you play chess regularly, it becomes a part of who you are. Inheriting an heirloom chess set leaves behind a way for progeny to remember you. Each time they play chess, they’ll feel connected to you, as if a piece of you remains with them for eternity.
- Long-term appreciation. A beautiful chess set is more than an heirloom, it’s a stunning piece of your home’s décor. An exquisite chess set must be handled with care and appreciated.
