This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in ebonized boxwood and boxwood matched with our Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. 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 jet black ebonized pieces look almost like real ebony and they make a beautiful contrast against the rich brown colors of the walnut. 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 rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge chess board make a wonderful backdrop against the jet black ebonized and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 1.75" squares accentuated by a wide black delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a molded edge. The overall size of the board is 17.5" and is .5" thick. The French Lardy continues to be one of the most popular chess sets ever made and an excellent choice for your game at home!
