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!
The rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge chess board make a wonderful backdrop against the burnt and cream-colored boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 2" squares accentuated by a beautiful sycamore delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a black molded edge. The overall size of the board is 19.5" and is .5" thick. Whether a collector or you are looking for one special chess set to display in your home, the Parker in burnt boxwood is an unbeatable choice.
