This chess set includes our Marengo Staunton in genuine ebony and boxwood matched with our South American Walnut and Maple Mission Craft chess board. This spectacular chess set is named after Napoleon Bonaparte's famous Arabian stallion for which he rode during the famous battle of Marengo. This chess set takes Staunton design to a new level with its artistic and elegant features. The knight is beautifully sculpted with realistic features and an elegant pose with its mane flowing back and head turned down. Only the best carvers in the world can accurately carve and replicate the details of this knight from piece to piece. All of the pieces are beautifully shaped with a unique and elegant profile that creates a coherent pattern from pawn to king. The lathe work is simply extraordinary. The Marengo is a large set with a king that is 4.25" tall and a base of 1.875". The king features a highly ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The pieces have thick green baize pads so you can slide your pieces across the board or sit down softly.

Made in America, our Zebrawood and Maple Mission Craft Solid Wood Chess Board is simplistically beautiful and profoundly designed. It's nothing less than a fine piece of handcrafted furniture and is the perfect surface for both playing and displaying your treasured chess set. Made from solid Zebra Wood, and maple with a decorative ebony inlay and black walnut corner dowels. Zebra wood is one of the most exotic and expensive woods in the world with a zebra stripe grain with a brown-gold color and dark brown stripes that gives this beautiful wood its name. This is a large chess board having 2.5" squares and measuring 23.875" x 23.875" x 1.375" tall.
