This traditional looking package combines our French Lardy Staunton chess set with ebonized boxwood and natural boxwood pieces and our Mahogany and Maple Deluxe 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 wood is hand polished to a beautiful sheen. Our Mahogany and Maple Deluxe chess board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the leading manufacturer of high quality chess boards in the world. The rich and warm reddish-brown hues of the mahogany creates a striking contrast with the solid black ebonized and natural boxwood chess pieces. Together these pieces and board make a terrific combination for a serious chess game and will look beautiful in your home.
