This chess set package includes our French Lardy Staunton in ebonized and natural boxwood with our Macassar and Maple Standard Chess Board. Our French Lardy 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 ebonized and natural 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.

The set is everything I expected it to be and more. Very nice quality. One minor comment and it is my fault for not checking,order the bigger men 2.75 inches are too small I find. Other than that its awesome. Ultimately I asked for a good deal on new bigger pieces and the chess.com was very accomodating. Would definately buy from them again in the futureAndrew Di Manno
