This chess set package includes a set of our French Lardy Staunton chess pieces in rosewood and boxwood matched with our Classic Mahogany 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 2.75” tall king with a base of 1.25”, 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. We include 2 spare queens for pawn promotion and certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made.
Our Classic Mahogany and Maple chess board is an excellent choice for matching with rosewood and boxwood chess pieces. The rosewood pieces have a rich burgundy-brown color that looks terrific standing on the warm orange-brown color of the mahogany. This is an inlaid chess board with the finest wood veneers and is handcrafted to exacting standards. The board is sealed in a satin polyurethane finish to protect the wood. An extra wide frame adds substantial size to the chess board and provides enough room for sitting captured pieces while a black inlay border creates a sharp delineation surrounding the playing area. The squares are 1.5" and the board measures 14" overall. The French Lardy continues to be one of the most popular chess sets ever made and is an excellent choice for your chess game!
