This luxurious chess set includes our Parker Staunton chess pieces handcrafted from boxwood matched with our Black and Ash Burl High Gloss Deluxe Chess Board and Classic Black Chess Box. Our Parker Staunton is a throwback to the vintage Staunton chess set patterns from over a hundred years ago. The Parker embodies the rich history of Staunton with traditional design elements in every respect from pawn to king. The knight is masterfully carved with shape, features, and detail reminiscent of past chess set masterpieces. The pieces are handcrafted from boxwood and then burnt and engraved to reveal the boxwood underneath creating a unique and beautiful pattern on each piece. This is a 34-piece set that includes two extra queens for pawn promotion. The king is 3.75" tall with a base diameter of 1.625", the perfect size for tournament chess games. Heavily weighted for exceptional stability, the pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft cushion on the chess board. We include a Certificate of Manufacturer so you will always know what the pieces are, when they were made, and where they came from.

Our Black and Ash Burl Deluxe Chess Board made for us by Rechapados Ferrer combines classic design with elegant features creating an eye-catching battlefield for your chess game. This is an inlaid chess board handcrafted from high quality black poplar and ash burl veneer sealed with a high gloss polyurethane finish giving the board a luxurious glass-like finish. A triple-layer delimiter defines the playing field, and a wide frame gives aesthetic balance to the board. The squares are 2” and the footprint of the board is 19.5” square. Four felt pads on the bottom will protect whatever furniture the board sets on.

Our Classic Black Chess Box is wonderfully constructed and reminiscent of the old heirloom quality boxes from years ago. The box is solid black with a grand piano high gloss finish. The interior is lined with a luxurious thick green baize just like we use for the pads on our chess pieces. The box is a loose-piece design for simple stacking of the pieces and has a divider in the center for neatly storing the black and white pieces separately. We use high quality brass plated hardware including recessed hinges, lock, and key adding the perfect touch to this beautiful box.

    I was so excited to get this and it didn’t disappoint. Started playing online and needed a physical board to practice some techniques. But it’s also very sexy. Sitting on the coffee table. Was bigger than I expected and the craftsmanship seems top notch. Love the burnt boxwood look. Pieces seem like they will last a lifetime too. Would take something serious to do any damage to them. 5/5
