This chess set package includes our British Staunton Chess Set in acacia wood and boxwood matched with our Walnut and Maple Chess Molded Edge Board. The acacia wood and boxwood chess pieces go perfect with the walnut and maple chess board. Our British Staunton is based on an old British Chess Company chess set from many years ago. It's purely traditional with all the features a player and collector looks for in a high quality Staunton chess set. The pieces are individually hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful luster. The king is 3.5" tall and has a base diameter of 1.375" - the ideal size for a game at home. The pieces have thick green baize pads so they slide smoothly across the chess board and are heavily weighted for stability. The British Staunton has been favorite with chess players for years and continues to be one of our most popular chess sets.
The rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board is perfect for matching with the golden-brown color of the acacia wood and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 1.75" squares accentuated by a beautiful sycamore delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a black molded edge. The overall size of the board is 19.75" and is .5" thick.
