This chess set includes our Hadrian Staunton in genuine ebony and boxwood matched together with our Black and Ash Burl Deluxe chess board. This elegant chess set is named after Hadrian, the famous Roman Emperor and military administrator that ruled from 117 to 138. Hadrian is known for having re-built the Pantheon and building the Temple of Venus and Roma but his most famous work was Hadrian's Wall which stretch for over 73 miles across Britain and marked the northern limit of Roman Britain. The Hadrian features a bridle and reigns and finely carved features including ears, eyes, mane, and mouth. This is a club size set with a 4.4" tall king and an extra wide base. The king has an ornate finial that that incorporates two small balls, one on each side of the finial. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and eloquent lines turned into the base. Even the rook stands out as an extraordinary piece with its' unique parapet and crenellations. The pawns are extra-large making them easy to handle during the game.
Our Black and Ash Burl High Gloss Deluxe Chess Board goes perfect with ebony and boxwood chess pieces. Imported from Spain, this is an inlaid chess board made for us by Rechapados Ferrer. The black and golden color of the natural ash burl are enhanced by the high gloss, glass-like finish creating an elegant backdrop for the ebony and boxwood chess pieces. A pinstripe delimiter around the squares and an extra-wide frame adds an elegant look to the board. The squares are 2.355" with the chess board measuring 23.5" x 23.5”.
