This colorful chess set includes our Patton Staunton chess pieces in padauk and boxwood matched with Italfama's Elm Burl and Erable (whitened bird's-eye maple) Chess Board. This large and handsome chess set is named after General George S. Patton of the United States Army. Patton successfully led many critical military campaigns during world war II including the Battle of the Bulge. Patton possessed a colorful, fiery image and he had a hard-driving personality that his men loved. A worthy name for the battles that will be fought and won with this chess set. This set features an extraordinary knight with graceful lines and intricate detail including a flared mane, eyes, nostrils, mouth and teeth. The king is 4.25" tall and features an ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and eloquent lines precisely turned into the base of each piece. Pieces are heavily weighted and have green baize pads for a soft and cushioned feel on the chess board.

From Italfama in Italy, their Elm Burl and Erable chess board is one of the most beautiful chess boards in our collection. Elm burl is a unique and colorful wood with brown and orange colors that intermingle creating irregular patterns. The rich colors of the elm burl create a stunning backdrop for the padauk and boxwood chess pieces. This is an inlaid chess board handcrafted by the skilled craftsmen of Italfama - the quality of the workmanship is unsurpassed. The squares are 2.375" and the overall size of the board is 23.5" and .75" thick.
