This beautiful chess set includes our Hengroen Staunton in ebony and boxwood matched with our Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. The Hengroen is named after the stallion rode by the legendary King Arthur. The Hengroen brings together the very best features of a heirloom quality set blending traditional Staunton elements with a contemporary design. The knight is beautifully sculpted with realistic features and an elegant pose with its head turned down and mane flowing down the neck. A bridal and breast collar add to the realistic design. Only the very best carvers in the world can accurately carve and replicate the details of this knight from piece to piece. The other pieces are equally crafted with wood turning that is is extraordinary. The Hengroen Staunton is a very large set with a 4.6 inch tall king with a base diameter of 1.9 inches. The pieces are made from the highest quality ebony and boxwood and heavily weighted for good balance and stability on the chess board. The king features a unique cross finial that you will not find on another chess set. The pieces have thick green baize pads so you can slide your pieces across the board or sit down softly. We include an extra queen for each color for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set name is, the type of wood, the year it was made, and where it came from. A must have for the collector!
