This beautiful chess set includes our Cyrus Staunton in ebony and boxwood matched with exclusive Mission Craft South American Walnut and Maple Chess Board. The 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. 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. The king is 4.4 inches 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.
