This chess set package includes our German Staunton Chess Set in golden rosewood and boxwood matched with our Classic 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, these pieces will stand up to the rigor of everyday play year after year. Pieces are turned and carved by the world's most skilled craftsmen one piece at time and then individually hand polished with a solid lacquer to a beautiful luster. Pieces are weighted for stability and have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board.
Our Classic Walnut and Maple chess board is the perfect board for matching with golden rosewood and boxwood chess pieces. The colors complement each other beautifully. This is an inlaid chess board with the finest wood veneers and is handcrafted to exacting standards. The board is sealed in a satin polyurethane finish to protect the wood. An extra wide frame adds substantial size to the chess board and provides enough room for sitting captured pieces while a black inlay border creates a sharp delineation surrounding the playing area. The squares are 1.5" and the board measures 14" overall. 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.

This is an outstanding chess board and set of chessmen. I'm very glad I chose it. Extremely high quality. Should last a lifetime. Pieces are nicely weighted and slide smoothly across the board. A pleasure to play on. The pieces and board also look nice. A beautiful set.Unknown

Great Christmas Present!
Thank you so much; the shipping was fast(late for christmas, that was my fault though), and the board and pieces look great; just as the pics show. The board is perfect (no marks or anything), and you packaged it really well. It was just left outside our door all day while we were gone which I wasn't thrilled about; I believe I left an email and I might have left my phone number too, so I would have preferred that I was contacted if noone was home at time of delivery. I came home from work and didn't see it set on a chair off to the sidea on our deck, and my boyfriend (whose gift it was) came home from work after me, saw it, and walked in the door with it and read on the box what it was and everything so the element of surprise was kind of ruined. BUT- it looks great and thank you so much. You never know with online stuff sometimes so I was really happy with it overall : )Unknown
