This chess set package includes our British Staunton Chess Set with golden rosewood and boxwood pieces matched with our walnut chess box. 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 golden rosewood chess pieces have rich golden-brown colors and 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.
This attractive walnut chess box is perfect for storing your golden rosewood chessmen. This is a traditional chess box that is designed for stacking or laying your chessmen on top of each other and there's plenty of room. It has an old world-charm with its lock and key for securing the lid and emerald green baize interior with a divider in the center for separating the two chess piece colors. This is an inlaid wood box with high quality walnut veneer on the outside and sealed with a satin polyurethane finish. The lock and recessed hinges are brass plated and have a rich looking gold-color mirror finish. The bottom of the box is covered in with black felt to protect furniture where it might sit.
