This stunning chess set includes our Bucephalus Staunton in ebony and boxwood matched with the Black and Ash Burl Deluxe chess board. This set is named after the famous war horse Bucephalus, that Alexander the Great rode throughout his many military conquests in the middle east. Bucephalus is a Greek name meaning "ox head", conjuring the image of a strong, broad and thick head. The knight was designed with this in mind creating a large but intricately detailed knight. Only the very best craftsmen can carve knights with this level of detail including eyes, nostrils, mouth, and teeth. What really stands out on this knight is the large and elegant mane flowing down the horses neck. All of the pieces are beautifully shaped with an elegant profile that forms a cohesive design from king to pawn. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and eloquent lines precisely turned into the base of each piece. This is a large set with a king that is 4.25" tall with a 1.875" base. Pieces are heavily weighted and have thick green baize pads.

Our Black and Ash Burl High Gloss Deluxe Chess Board goes perfect with ebony and boxwood chess pieces. Imported from Spain, this is an inlaid chess board made for us by Rechapados Ferrer. The black and golden color of the natural ash burl are enhanced by the high gloss, glass-like finish creating an elegant backdrop for the ebony and boxwood chess pieces. A pinstripe delimiter around the squares and an extra-wide frame adds an elegant look to the board. The squares are 2.355" with the chess board measuring 23.5" x 23.5”. Whether you are a collector or looking for your one special chess set, you will be thoroughly pleased with the Bucephalus!
