This package includes our Hallett of High Holborn Antique Reproduction Chess Set with ebony and boxwood pieces matched with our Mahogany and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. Our skilled craftsmen have recreated this exquisite chess set based on the original set produced by William Hallett of High Holborn back during the Victorian period in England. Each piece is beautifully designed with shapes and features commonly seen on English sets back in the mid-1800s. The knights are quite eloquent with a mane that looks different on each side. These pieces are made of genuine ebony and boxwood and have a traditional polished lacquer finish the makes the ebony shine like black obsidian. This is a large and heavy set with the king standing 4" tall and with a base diameter of 1.7". Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft cushion on the chess board and are heavily weighted for exceptional balance and stability. We include two extra queens for pawn promotion.
Our Mahogany and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the manufacturer of the highest quality inlaid chess boards in the world. Made from premium grade mahogany and maple veneer, the precision of the craftsmen inlay work is remarkable. The squares are 2.125" and the overall size of the board is 21.5" and .5" thick. A wide black delimiter surrounds and accentuates the squares from the extra wide frame. The molded edge is stained black to enhance the colors of the rich orange-brown color of the mahogany. The board is sealed with a matte polyurethane finish that both protects and enhances the beauty of the wood.
