This chess set package includes a set of our Parker Staunton chess pieces in boxwood matched with our Classic Mahogany and Maple Chess Board. 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. The Parker offers a traditional Staunton design but with a unique burnt design carved into the pieces. 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. We include 2 spare queens for pawn promotion and certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, where it came from, and when it was made.
Our Classic Mahogany and Maple chess board is an excellent choice for matching with rosewood and boxwood chess pieces. The burnt boxwood pieces create a stunning contrast against the warm orange-brown color of the mahogany. This is an inlaid chess board with the finest wood veneers and is handcrafted to exacting standards. The board is sealed in a satin polyurethane finish to protect the wood. An extra wide frame adds substantial size to the chess board and provides enough room for sitting captured pieces while a black inlay border creates a sharp delineation surrounding the playing area. The squares are 2.25" and the board measures 21" overall. Our burnt Parker offers a one of a kind chess set and elevates the enjoyment of a chess game to a new level!
