This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in ebonized boxwood and boxwood matched with our macassar ebony and maple chess board and 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 2.75” tall king with a base of 1.25”, 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 look stunning with the black and burnt umber colors of the macassar ebony. 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!

The macassar ebony and maple chess board is made with the finest veneers and sealed in semi-gloss polyurethane protective finish. The squares are 1.5" and the overall size of the board is 14" and a half an inch thick. A wide maple inlay border accentuates the playing area and the bottom of the board has pads to protect whatever surface it sets on. The chess box is wonderfully constructed and reminiscent of the old heirloom quality chess boxes from many years ago. The box is covered in macassar ebony veneer and the interior is lined with a thick green baize just like we use for the pads on our chess pieces. The box has a divider in the center for storing the black and white pieces separately. We used high quality recessed hinges and a brass plated lock for securing the lid. We include 2 keys in case one ever gets lost.

    A beautiful set

    Very well constructed. Very well packaged. Arrived in perfect condition. My only nit is that the knights seem a little big in relation to the other pieces. Indeed when I compared it to the picture, they are larger. The pictured knight is slightly shorter than the bishop. The ones that came with the set are as tall as the bishop. Everything else matches the pictured set perfectly.
