This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in ebonized boxwood and acacia wood matched with our Deluxe Tiger Ebony 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 the perfect tournament chess set with a 3.75" king. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel when moving and are properly weighted for stability on the chess board. The ebonized boxwood and acacia are hand polished to a beautiful sheen.
Our Deluxe Tiger Ebony and Maple Chess Board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the largest manufacturer of high quality chess boards in the world. Tiger ebony has one of the most unique grain patterns of all the wood species in the world with irregular black and brown stripes similar to that of a tiger. The ebonized and acacia wood pieces match the color of the stripes perfectly. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest quality veneers and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the 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 and the bottom of the board has pads to protect whatever surface it sets on. The French Lardy is truly a classic and an exceptional chess set for the casual game at home or tournament play.
