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. 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.

    I needed a specific sized set for my game table. I found exactly what I needed and I bought a beautiful set. I cannot believe the variety and quality at the ChessStore. When it comes to Chess they have it all! If you don’t see it....ask! Great folks! My order came earlier than expected and was just as described. I’ll be doing business with these folks in future and I will be recommending them as well. The ChessStore is, in a word, OUTSTANDING!

    French Lardy Set w/ 2.75" King

    Posted by Jack Anderson on 25th Oct 2015

    I play a lot in coffee houses on cafe tables. This smaller set travels well and is perfect for use in this kind of venue. Even though I bought this chess set on ebay at a discount, The Chess Store handled my purchase as if I was a VIP paying top dollar. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the merchandise, and very pleased with the way I was served. Thank you, Chess Store!
