Picture this beautiful Staunton wood chess set sitting atop your chess board ready for a game or just adding to the décor of your living room. Our British Staunton was inspired by the old British Chess Company design from many years ago. This chess set features a 4” tall king with a base diameter of 1.625”, an ideal size for tournament play or casual chess games at home. Pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board and are nicely weighted for stability. The rosewood pieces will range from a rich burgundy to a blend of orange and burnt umber colors while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces.  The pieces are individually hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful shine. This old-world, heirloom quality chess set is a favorite with players and collectors alike with its traditional Staunton design.

This attractive mahogany chess box is perfect for storing your ebonized boxwood 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 mahogany 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.
