This chess set includes our German Staunton with ebonized boxwood and boxwood pieces matched with our Deluxe Two Drawer Black and Bird's-Eye Maple Chess Case. 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 thick green baize pads for a soft cushion on the chess board and are weighted for stability. The king measures 3.25" tall and has a base of 1.25". We include 2 spare queens for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made. 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.
Our Deluxe Two-Drawer Black & Bird's-Eye Maple Chess Case is the ideal choice for combining a chess board with a way for storing pieces when you are not playing a game. This exterior of the case is made from solid poplar with an elegant molded edge design that incorporates a graceful curve and a three row beaded section at the top. The chess board is made from black stained poplar and bird's-eye maple veneer and has a decorative mahogany inlaid border to delineate the playing area. There are two drawers, one on each player's side that completely pull out to make it easy to put pieces away or take them back out. A recessed magnet on each of the drawer secures the drawer when closed.
