This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in Acacia and boxwood matched with our Standard Walnut and Maple Chess Board. Our French Lardy Staunton is based on the original chess set made by the Lardy Chess Company in France from many years ago. There's nothing fancy about this chess set but it has a masculine handsomeness and a traditional Staunton look that serious chess players prefer for their everyday chess set. This is a smaller size chess set with a 2.75" king making it perfect for games at home. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel when moving and are properly weighted for stability on the chess board. The Acacia and boxwood are hand polished to a beautiful sheen. The French Lardy is truly a classic and an exceptional chess set for the casual game at home or tournament play.
The rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board is perfect for matching with the golden-brown color of the acacia wood and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut 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 1.5" squares accentuated by a beautiful sycamore delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a black molded edge. The overall size of the board is 15.5" and is .5" thick. Whether a collector or you are looking for one special chess set to display in your home, the New Exclusive will enhance every game you play.
