This unique handcrafted chess set includes our Deluxe Old Club Staunton with golden rosewood and boxwood pieces matched with our Walnut and Maple Deluxe 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 tournament size chess set with a 3.75" tall king.
Our Walnut and Maple Deluxe Chess Board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the manufacturer of the highest quality inlaid chess boards in the world. Made from premium grade walnut and maple veneer, the precision of the craftsmen inlay work is remarkable. The squares are 2" and the overall size of the board is 19.5" and .5" thick. A triple inlay delimiter accentuates the playing area from the extra wide frame that is the full width of a square. The board is sealed with a matte polyurethane finish that both protects and enhances the beauty of the wood. 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.
