From our vault where these chess pieces have sat for over eight years we are offering for sale a very limited number of our Imperial Staunton chess sets in red sandalwood and boxwood. We have been holding on to these master pieces for years allowing the natural patina process of the red sandalwood to darken into the rich burgundy color that red sandalwood is known for - much like the aging of red wine. Red sandalwood can no longer be imported into the United States which makes this chess set a rarity and a one-time opportunity for the discerning collector.
The Imperial is amazing chess set that is massive with the king standing a full six inches tall and with a base of 2.25". These pieces are precisely turned and the knights are carved with fine detail and wonderfully replicated from piece to piece.
