This chess set package includes our Old English Classic with padauk and boxwood pieces matched with our Padauk and Bird's-Eye Maple Molded Edge chess board. Our Old English Classic is the epitome of a traditional Staunton chess set in every respect. This classic design captures the key elements of old Jaques patterns from back in the 1800s, from king to pawn. These are padauk and boxwood pieces with a traditional polished lacquer finish. The king is 3.9” tall and has a 1.7” diameter base. The pieces are heavily weighted for exceptional balance and stability on the chess board. Green billiard cloth pads on the bottom allow the pieces to easily slide across the chess board and have a quiet and soft feel when sitting down. We include two extra queens for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is and where it came from. The Old English Classic will add a touch of nostalgia to the chess games you play.
Our Padauk and Bird's-Eye Maple Molded Edge chess board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain, the preeminent wood chess board manufacturer in the world. The craftsmanship and quality of the inlay work is unsurpassed. The black molded edge accentuates the rich red-brown colors of the padauk and a wide black inlay delineates the squares. The squares are 2.125" and the chess board measures 21.5" overall and is .5" thick. An excellent chess board for the backdrop of these beautiful padauk and boxwood pieces. The Old English Classic with colorful padauk and boxwood pieces with this elegant chess board will add a touch of nostalgia to the chess games you play.
