This chess set package includes our Deluxe Old Club Staunton in golden rosewood and boxwood matched with our Deluxe Walnut and Maple Standard Chess Board. The rich golden brown colors of the walnut chess board go perfectly with the colors of the golden rosewood chess pieces. Our Deluxe Old Club Staunton chess set is an ageless classic that for years has been a favorite with players for its distinguishable knight and traditional Staunton look. The Deluxe Old Club is often displayed on the front cover of chess books and has been used for plastic chess set models because of its popularity with club and tournament players. Pieces are heavily weighted for stability while billiard cloth pads give the pieces a soft feel and easy to slide across the chess board. This is a medium size chess set with a 3.25" tall king - an ideal size for your casual chess game at home.
The rich brown color of our Deluxe Walnut and Maple Chess Board is perfect for matching with the golden-brown color of the golden rosewood and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain handcrafted from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the workmanship is remarkable. The chess board has 1.75" squares accentuated by a decorative delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame. The overall size of the board is 17.75" and is .5" thick. Whether you are a collector, competitive player, or looking for just one special chess set for your games at home, the Deluxe Old Club along with this beautiful chess board make an outstanding combination.
