The New Exclusive Staunton handcrafted chess set has all of the features that an avid chess player and collector looks for in an upper-end Staunton chess set. These are African padauk and boxwood pieces. African padauk is an exotic wood with a blend of rich colors that range from coral orange to burgundy. 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 3.5" tall and has a 1.625" 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 2 extra queens for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made.
