Our magnificent new Cyrus Staunton is a large club size chess set with unique and elegant features extending Staunton design well beyond the ordinary. This beautiful Staunton chess set is named for Cyrus the Great, King of the Persian Empire that conquered both the Median and Babylonian empires. Cyrus was one of the great military strategists of all time and we think an appropriate name with which to honor this chess set. All of the pieces are unique in their shape and have detail unlike any other Staunton chess set. The knight is artistically designed with elegant and intricate features that are meticulously hand carved including the eyes, nostrils, mouth, teeth and a flared mane which creates movement. The king is 4.4" tall and features an ornate finial that is unique from any chess set in our collection. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and graceful precisely turned into the base of each piece. The pawns are extra-large making them easy to handle during your game. The pieces are heavily weighted with green baize pads for a soft and cushioned feel on the chess board. Pieces are hand carvedfrom ebony, a gorgeous jet black, and the light amber color boxwood; each polished to a beautiful luster.

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”.
