From our Staunton by Design Collection, our Decorative Parker Staunton in burnt boxwood and boxwood 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. A wonderful set for a casual game of chess or tournament play.

The quality of these chess pieces is truly amazing. They are stunning to see in person. I have been given numerous compliments on them, in the short time I have owned them. Gorgeous, hand crafted pieces. Very satisfied with my purchase.
Everything is fine except one bishop, it was as if while building and molding someone had cracked the wood and they used some apoxy to fix it. It is clearly visible and a little disappointing. Other than that good piece
This set is absolutely gorgeous and the photos just do not do it justice as it is so mich more splendid in person, it could be a room centerpiece on its own...They are heiloom quality, a great weight, and reasonably priced. My husband was thrilled when getting these under the tree, we know they will be in our family for years to come.
This chess set is very ornate and it is a show stopper. Very beautiful and. I would have guessed the price to be well over $200.00. The workmanship is outstanding. You have to see and feel each piece. I have a nice tournament sized in black and white. When I go into a chess club to play, it stops people and everyone and they ask me where I bought and what I paid for the set. There are nothing but great comments. They look much better in person than in a picture. Buy these, you will be so happy, I guarantee it.
Do not miss out on these pieces, they are sensational looking and quite heavy. They are absolutely magnificent looking. The play between the white and black pieces from a color point of view were incredible. Extremely beautiful. Buy them NOW.
Very satisfied with this set. Gorgeous looking and one of the most unique sets I have seen, at a great value too. The burnt finish makes it a definite conversation piece and the set is great to play with.
I am a chess lover with many boards and chess sets, and was certainly not looking to buy another one! I first saw this set this summer at the Chess Center in London, and was blown away by its uniqueness and beauty. The weight and heft of the pieces is nice, but the detailed carvings, interplay between colors and the perfection of the finish has to be seen to be believed. The memory of the set stayed with my, such that on my return from London, I felt compelled to find the set here in the US and purchase it.
Delivery was fast and the set I received is flawless. I have a beautiful Italian chess table that deserves to be paired with a set of this quality. I suspect the table and set will become family heirlooms. The price is surprisingly reasonable - to be honest, I would have expected this set to cost closer to $1,000. I do not usually leave reviews, but had to make an exception for this unique and breathtaking set.
The pieces are really nice.
