This chess set includes our German Staunton Chess Set with ebonized boxwood and boxwood pieces matched with our Deluxe Walnut 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". The ebonized boxwood is jet black with no visible grain just like real ebony while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. 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 Chess Case has two drawers with individual compartments for storing all 32 chess pieces separately. The compartments are lined on the sides and bottom with a soft beige velour material to protect the pieces from getting scuffed up. The case measures 16.5" square and is 3" tall. The chess board squares are 1.625" and are enclosed by an attractive black border. The sides of the case have an elegant molded profile and the board on top is enclosed by a frame. This chess set will look stunning displayed in your home whether you keep the pieces in the drawer or leave them on the board ready for the next game.

I bought this set for my son. It is a beautiful, high quality chess set. Arrived as promised. It was well packed. I ordered a black box as well that did not arrived with the chess set. However, I called the store and they acknowledged that they forgot to include it and promised to ship it.
