The ebonized boxwood is jet black with no visible grain just like real ebony while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The New Exclusive Staunton has all of the features that avid chess players and collectors looks for in an upper-end Staunton chess set. From the elegant profile with a large tapered base to the extraordinary knights carved by some of the best craftsmen in the world, you will be thoroughly impressed with the quality of these Staunton chessmen. The king is 4" tall and has a 1.875" base - an excellent size for the casual game at home! The pieces are triple weighted for exceptional stability and have thick green baize pads for a soft landing on the chess board. We include a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made.
Our Classic Mahogany and Maple chess board is an excellent choice for matching with ebonized and boxwood chess pieces. The black pieces create a stunning contrast with the warm orange-brown color of the mahogany. This is an inlaid chess board with the finest wood veneers and is handcrafted to exacting standards. The board is sealed in a satin polyurethane finish to protect the wood. An extra wide frame adds substantial size to the chess board and provides enough room for sitting captured pieces while a black inlay border creates a sharp delineation surrounding the playing area. The squares are 2.25" and the board measures 21" overall. Our New Exclusive is an excellent choice for the game at home!
