This chess set includes our German Knight Staunton chess pieces in Golden Rosewood and Boxwood matched with our Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. Sometimes simple is best and that's true of our German Knight Staunton with its simple but attractive design. Unencumbered by fine detail, the pieces will stand up to the rigor of everyday play and it's the perfect chess set for blitz. This is a medium size chess set ideal for the chess game at home. The king is 3.25" tall and has a base diameter of 1.25". Pieces are nicely weighted and have thick green baize pads for a soft landing on the chess board. The golden rosewood and boxwood are hand polished to a beautiful luster.
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 1.75" 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. 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.
