This unique and attractive chess set includes our Cambridge Springs Antique Reproduction Chess Pieces, our Black and Ash Burl High Gloss Chess Board and Classic Black Chess Box. Our Cambridge Springs Antique Reproduction Chess Set originates from the 1904 Cambridge Springs International Chess Congress; the first international chess tournament held in America in the twentieth century. These attractive and stout pieces, ideal for competitive chess, were every bit worthy of a such a prominent event. These are ebonized and aged boxwood pieces with a traditional polished lacquer finish. The king is 4" tall king with a 1.75" wide base and are heavily weighted for exceptional balance and stability on the chess board. The pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board and we include two extra queens for pawn promotion.
Our Black and Ash Burl High Gloss Deluxe Chess Board is made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain. This is an inlaid chess board made from black poplar and ash burl veneer and finished with a glass-like high gloss polyurethane that both enhances and protects the beauty of the wood. A pinstripe delimiter accentuates the squares and an extra-wide frame adds an elegant look to the board. The precision of the inlay work by the Rechapados Ferrer craftsmen is unmatched. The squares are 2.125" and the chess board measures 21.5" overall and has felt pads on the bottom.
Our Classic Black Chess Piece Box is wonderfully constructed and reminiscent of the old heirloom quality chess boxes from many years ago. The box has a high gloss black piano finish and the interior is lined with a thick green baize just like we use for the pads on our chess pieces. The box has a divider in the center for storing the black and white pieces separately. We used high quality recessed hinges and a brass plated lock for securing the lid. We include 2 keys in case one ever gets lost. Whether you are a collector or looking for one special chess set, the nostalgia the Cambridge Springs invokes will add enjoyment to every game you play.
