This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in golden rosewood and boxwood matched with our Standard Walnut and Maple Chess Board. Our French Lardy Staunton 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 golden rosewood and 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.

    Pretty while practical

    Looks very nice and good for play. The pieces are just fine. You can really see the wood grain in the dark pieces. The board really stands out to me as pretty. Looks just like it does in the picture.

    Great library set

    This set is the perfect balance of beauty, ruggedness and affordability. It's attractive enough for display and solid enough for everyday play. The board and pieces were in perfect condition without any scuffs, cracks or chips.
