This elegant chess set includes our Cyrus Staunton in genuine ebony and boxwood with Italfama's Elm Burl and Whitened Bird's Eye Maple chess board. The Cyrus is large club size chess set with unique and elegant features extending Staunton design well beyond the ordinary. This beautiful Staunton chess set is named after 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" 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.

From Italfama in Italy, their Elm Burl and Erable chess board is one of the most beautiful chess boards in our collection. Elm burl is a unique and colorful wood with brown and orange colors that intermingle creating irregular patterns. The rich colors of the elm burl create a stunning backdrop against the ebony and boxwood chess pieces. This is an inlaid chess board handcrafted by the skilled craftsmen of Italfama - the quality of the workmanship is unsurpassed. The squares are 2.375" and the overall size of the board is 23.5" and .75" thick.
