This elegant handcrafted Staunton chess set includes our Fierce Knight with ebonized and natural boxwood pieces matched with our Mahogany and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. The Fierce Knight is a blend of contemporary and traditional Staunton design featuring knights that are carved with realistic features. The perked ears, eyes, mouth, and mane create a fierce looking countenance that gives this set its name. The ebonized boxwood is jet black with no visible grain just like real ebony while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The pieces are hand polished to a beautiful luster. The king is 3" tall and has a base diameter of 1.375". The pieces are heavily weighted for exceptional stability on the chess board and have thick green baize pads for easily sliding from square to square and a soft feel when placing. We include 2 spare queens for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made.
The rich orange-brown color of the mahogany makes it the ideal backdrop for the jet black ebonized and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest mahogany and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 1.75" squares accentuated by a wide black delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a black molded edge. The overall size of the board is 17.75" and is .5" thick. Whether a collector or you are looking for one special chess set to display in your home, the Fierce Knight will enhance the pleasure of every game you play.
