This elegant handcrafted chess set package includes our Parker Staunton with burnt boxwood pieces matched with our Deluxe Two-Drawer Black & Bird's-Eye Maple Chess Case. The Parker has the look and character you expect in a traditional Staunton chess set. The knights are wonderfully carved with just the right level of detail for a chess set that will get a lot of use. To create the black color the boxwood chess pieces are actually burnt followed by the final carving and design work which creates a beautiful contrast in colors between the blackened areas and the natural golden wood colors underneath. The pieces are sealed in a high-gloss polyurethane finish that gives them an elegant glass like appearance. The king is 3.75" tall and has a base diameter of 1.625" - an ideal tournament size set. The pieces are heavily weighted and have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board. We include 2 spare 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. This beautiful handcrafted chess set will please any chess player and enhance the pleasure of the game!

Our Deluxe Two-Drawer Black & Bird's-Eye Maple Chess Case is the ideal choice for combining a chess board with a way for storing pieces when you are not playing a game. This exterior of the case is made from solid poplar with an elegant molded edge design that incorporates a graceful curve and a three row beaded section at the top. The chess board is made from black stained poplar and bird's-eye maple veneer and has a decorative mahogany inlaid border to delineate the playing area. There are two drawers, one on each player's side that completely pull out to make it easy to put pieces away or take them back out. A recessed magnet on each of the drawer secures the drawer when closed.
