This chess set package includes our German Staunton Chess Set in acacia and boxwood matched with our Standard Walnut and Maple Chess Board. Sometimes simple is best and that's true of our German Knight Staunton chess set with its simple but attractive design. Unencumbered by fine detail, the pieces will stand up to the rigor of everyday play and it's an especially good chess set for blitz. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel on the chess board and are weighted for stability. The golden rosewood and boxwood are hand polished to a beautiful sheen. More chess games have been played with a German Knight than any other chess set in the world and it continues to be our most popular chess set.
The rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board is perfect for matching with the golden-brown color of the acacia wood and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 2" squares accentuated by a beautiful sycamore delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a black molded edge. The overall size of the board is 19.5" and is .5" thick. Whether a collector or you are looking for one special chess set to display in your home, the German Knight Staunton will enhance every game you play.
