This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton in ebonized and natural boxwood with our Macassar and Maple Standard Chess Board. Our French Lardy 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. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel when moving and are properly weighted for stability on the chess board. The ebonized and natural 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.

    Very Happy with this Chess Set!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Jul 2018

    I bought this Chess set as a surprise birthday present for my husband. When choosing this set on site, I was looking for something affordable yet sturdy. At first I was a little unsure about the "king's height", since they come in 2.75" and 3.75"... I wasn't sure if 2.75" would mean the pieces would be too small due to one of the reviews I read, but it was perfect! the pieces are a little taller and wider than the typical plastic "black and red" chess set that you would get at a Target or wherever they sell games. The board is beautifully made and is the perfect size - I was also afraid that it would be too small at 14" x 14", but I am happy overall with the sizing and the quality of the pieces - They also provide an extra queen for each side. I received it exactly a week from purchase, and it was boxed very carefully. I would highly recommend this set for those who are searching for a well made and affordable wooden set and is absolutely an upgrade from the typical plastic "red/black" chess set.

    Beautiful Board

    The set is everything I expected it to be and more. Very nice quality. One minor comment and it is my fault for not checking,order the bigger men 2.75 inches are too small I find. Other than that its awesome. Ultimately I asked for a good deal on new bigger pieces and the chess.com was very accomodating. Would definately buy from them again in the future
