This beautiful handcrafted chess set includes our German Knight Staunton with ebonized and natural boxwood pieces matched with our Classic Walnut and Maple Chess Board. Simple is often best and our German Knight Staunton Chess Set with its simple and attractive design is the ideal chess set for your everyday chess game. Unencumbered by fine detail, these pieces will stand up to the rigor of regular play for a lifetime. This set has a 2.75” king with a base diameter of 1.25”, a compact size ideal for home. Pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board and are nicely weighted for stability. The ebonized boxwood pieces are jet black while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The pieces are individually hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful shine. More chess games have been played with a German Knight than any other chess set in the world and it continues to be our number one selling chess set.

Our Classic Walnut and Maple Chess Board is wonderfully handcrafted from the finest veneers and sealed in a semi-gloss polyurethane finish that both enhances and protects the character of the wood. This board features 1.5” squares and has a footprint of 15.5" and is .5” thick. We framed the squares in a wide black delimiter to both accentuate the playing area and enhance the rich color of the walnut and maple. For balance of design and visual aesthetics, we enveloped the board with a frame the full width of the squares. The precision of the inlay work across the entire chess board is remarkable. This beautiful chess board will enhance the enjoyment of every chess game you play on it.
