This attractive handcrafted chess set includes our French Lardy with ebonized and natural boxwood pieces with our Classic Walnut and Maple Chess Board and matching Classic Walnut Chess Box. 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 3.75” tall king with a base of 1.5”, 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 jet black ebonized pieces look almost like real ebony and they make a beautiful contrast against the rich golden-brown colors of the walnut board. 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 Classic Walnut and Maple Chess Board is wonderfully handcrafted from the finest veneers and sealed in a semi-gloss polyurethane finish that both enhances and protects the character of the wood. This board features 2” squares and has a footprint of 19.5" and is .5” thick. We framed the squares in a wide black delimiter to both accentuate the playing area and enhance the rich color of the walnut and maple. For balance of design and visual aesthetics, we enveloped the board with a frame the full width of the squares. The precision of the inlay work across the entire chess board is remarkable. This beautiful chess board will enhance the enjoyment of every chess game you play on it.

    A Great Permanent Investment

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Apr 2018

    My 12 year old grandson, 11 year old and 8 year old granddaughters have completed a chess course, at our local public library and they've started to hone their skills against their papa. I remove 6-7 of my pieces to give them their opportunity, to exhibit their "knowledge/strategy" of the game. I was greatly impressed with the product, by its' price, workmanship and appearance. It has the appearance of a set that, you would find at competitions. The grand kids are in awe of this impressive chess set. They've never seen anything like this before and will look forward to many fulfilling snowing and raining days, without TV and video games.

    Beautiful craftsmanship

    Posted by Bill on 5th Feb 2018

    The pieces are terrific and feel great on the board and in the hand. Good weight to em. Few minor scuffs and marks here and there on some of the pieces but that’s if you’re looking up close and under good light. My ebonized chessmen came to me with an issue but Jeff with customer service was glad to help and really listened to my issues. Thanks guys, you’ve got a long time customer from now on.
