This elegant chess set is named after Maharana Pratap's famous Arabian stallion for which he rode during the famous battle of Haldighati. Chetak was killed during the battle and was immortalized forever in the legend of the battle. Pieces are made from padauk and boxwood and are heavily weighted to provide exceptional stability on the chess board. The knight is beautifully carved with realistic features and detail that only the most skilled carvers in the world can accurately carve and replicate from piece to piece. All of the pieces are beautifully shaped with a unique and elegant profile that creates a coherent pattern from pawn to king. The lathe work is simply extraordinary. The Chetak is a large set with a king that is 4.25" tall and a base of 1.875". The king features a highly ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The pieces have thick green baize pads so you can slide your pieces across the board or sit down softly. We include an extra queen for each color for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set name is, the type of wood, the year it was made, and where it came from.

    Extremely well carved and turned. Good polish on both the padauk and boxwood.

    The quaility of all pieces is high and especially the knight. There is good polish on both the paduak and boxwood; some sets seem to scriimp on the boxwood polish. The triple weight is noticeably and makes satisfying thud on my hardwood chessboard.

    Chess Store also performed welll. Sent me an immediate order confirmation, shipping soon following and the order arrived promptly. The set was packed in cut to form for each piece.
