Imagine you and a good friend sitting at a table playing a game of chess on this stunning chess board with these elegant chess pieces. This is our Parker Staunton chess set in burnt boxwood and boxwood matched with our Black & Ash Burl Deluxe 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 Black & Ash Burl Deluxe Chess Board is the ideal chess board for these pieces. The black and golden color of the ash burl match perfectly with the black and amber color of the chess pieces. The chess board is finished in a glass-like, polyurethane finish that compliments the pieces in a stunning way. Because of the special qualities this chess set has, this is one of our most popular packages that both players and collectors love. Be sure to read the reviews below.
No question, this is a one of the most beautiful chess sets I've seen. Beautiful design, the figures are of the right size and weight. Just as you see i the pictures. I bought this set for as agift to a friends for his housewarming. All was good except...where are the numbers and letters on the board?! I am Armenian and we are big into chess at home, and not having letters and numbers on the board makes this chess look like a piece of furniture. Again the set is beautiful, but that small detail of not having the numbers and letters on it is what keeps me away from buying it for me or my other friends.Greg

It was a gift, my friend loves it, full points for quality. My only negative was that when I first signed in to the site its offered me a 10% discount that somehow expired before I could complete my purchase. They should really last at least that long. Excellent set though.Bob

If your looking for a display Chess set, this one is beautiful. It is fairly light and the board is thin. Experienced chess players ( you probably aren't looking at this set anyway ), would probably prefer one of their Brass metal or gold silver sets. This set is inexpensive & very affordable. Purchased as a gift for beginner player, he really loved it.Chess Player

I wanted to learn how to play chess and was looking for a chess set that could be left out on display when not being used. I saw this set on the Chess Store web cite and thought it looked gorgeous. However, you always wonder if what you actually get will live up to what you see. I have to say this set did not disappoint. It is impressive and looks gorgeous sitting on our bookcase. It came safely package and immediately catches your eye when you walk into the family room. It is really stunning and is something that we will pass down to our children. I would recommend this set to anyone who is looking not only for a great playing chess set but a truly unique work of art. Rick on January 5, 2016
