This attractive handcrafted chess set includes our French Lardy with golden rosewood and boxwood pieces matched with our Classic Walnut and Maple 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 3.75” 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 golden rosewood has rich golden-brown colors and a beautiful grain while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The pieces are hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful luster. 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.

    French Lardy Staunton

    Posted by Kyle on 22nd Jan 2024

    I do not know much about chess boards because this was a gift to my father. All I can say is that he is more than happy with it and he would not stop playing after we gifted it to him. The whole set is good quality which was what we were looking for. Thank You guys!!!

    Such a suave chess set with very smooth surface. Pieces are perfectly weighted and they come with Certificate of Authenticity. The board is fully felted in black underneath. While it is nice to look at and really inspiring to make a move, you wouldn’t want to use it with just anybody to preserve its fineness and uphold its degree of sophistication. This chess set is highly commendable.

    A Fine Set of Chess Pieces

    Posted by FXH on 3rd Feb 2016

    I have been playing with a different set (also purchased from The and they were quite nice, but a little small for someone with large hands. These pieces are fine looking, nicely weighted and large enough to make the playing easier. I will keep the other set for travel and use this set for my chess at home. I think this is a very attractive style. It is simple and not distracting, yet each piece is uniquely itself. The finish is attractive enough to be displayed, yet clean and devoid of ostentation.

    Extremely nice standard chess set

    Posted by Lloyd Botway on 26th Jan 2016

    In this set the size of the pieces relative to the size of the squares is just right, The wood pieces with felt bottoms look and feel nice. The board super-smooth, finished beautifully. In both the pieces and the board, an attractive grain is visible in the wood. Excellent value.

    Beautiful Set

    Posted by Brian on 28th Dec 2015

    We bought this as a gift for our son who loves to play chess and we were looking for a chess board he could have for a long time. We were expecting a nice set, but both my husband and I were surprised at just how nice the board and pieces are. It's a pleasure to play with the this set, the pieces glide across the board. The shipping was extremely fast as well.
