This elegant chess set package from our Staunton by Design Collection comes with our Decorative Parker Staunton in burnt boxwood and boxwood with our Walnut and Maple Chess Board. The Parker offers a traditional Staunton chess set with a unique design and finish. It has a classic style with handsome knights that have the look and feel of the older Jaques designs. To create the black, 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. Chess pieces are then finished in high gloss lacquer giving the chess pieces a glass-like finish. Our walnut chess board creates a wonderful contrast with the pieces and looks gorgeous!
For Christmas 2017, I purchased this set for my child Jacob whose interest in chess continued.
After some research on the internet, I came across the chess store. While there, I was very pleased of coming across this set that appeared to possess both quality and beauty. I also the set to be beautiful.
My boy Jacob is a man of few words and when I asked him if he likes the chess set. Jacob said "very good".
Thank you for making this set affordable for a laborer who is spread out thin.
