This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in acacia wood and boxwood matched with our Deluxe Walnut Chess Case. Our French Lardy Staunton originates from the classic model produced by the French Lardy Chess Company many years ago. The simple and handsome design has proven a favorite for generations of chess players. The pieces are beautifully shaped with simple detail that will withstand the wear and tear of regular use. This set features a 3.25” tall king with a base of 1.375”, an ideal set for casual games at home with family and friends. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft landing on the chess board and are nicely weighted for stability. The acacia wood has rich golden-brown colors and a beautiful grain while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The pieces are hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful luster. We include a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made. The French Lardy continues to be one of the most popular chess sets ever made and is an excellent choice for your chess game!
Our Deluxe Chess Case has two drawers with individual compartments for storing all 32 chess pieces separately. The compartments are lined on the sides and bottom with a soft beige velour material to protect the pieces from getting scuffed up. The case measures 16.5" square and is 3" tall. The chess board squares are 1.625" and are enclosed by an attractive black border. The sides of the case have an elegant molded profile and the board on top is enclosed by a frame. This chess set will look stunning displayed in your home whether you keep the pieces in the drawer or leave them on the board ready for the next game.

The pieces are a great size and weight, no problems with toppling over. The board is perfect, large squares and a a nice little edge to keep things from falling off when the board is bumped. The drawers are very nicely lined and slide easily. We chose the French lardy set because the knight looked good. Most sets feature a knight that looks like it's angry or in pain and this is not suitable for people who love their horses :) The carving is very smooth and detailed on all pieces.
