This exquisite chess set is named after the famous war horse Copenhagen, that belonged to the Duke of Wellington and was named after the second battle of Copenhagen. 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 back of 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 set is made from the highest quality red sandalwood and boxwood. Pieces are heavily weighted for exceptional stability on the chess board. This is a large set with a king that is 4.4" tall with a 1.875" base. These chess sets have been stored in our vault for years and we are releasing a very small quantity for sale at this time. Whether you are a collector or looking for one special chess set to display in your home, the Copenhagen is an unbeatable choice!
