This beautiful chess set includes our Vienna Coffee House antique reproduction chess pieces matched with our Walnut and Maple Molded Edge Chess Board. The Vienna Coffee House is elegant and has a unique design based on the sets produced in the early 1900's in Austria. There were many iterations of the basic design and our approach was to take the best elements from the most attractive models and create a chess set that had the best of everything. Our chess pieces are more refined and much higher quality than would have been available with the original sets. This is large set with a 4" tall king and a base diameter of 1.7". The knights are wonderfully carved with handsome features and fine detail. These pieces are made from ebonized and natural boxwood and have a glass-like lacquered finish.
The rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge chess board makes a wonderful backdrop against the high gloss black and boxwood pieces. This is an inlaid chess board made from the finest walnut and maple veneer and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the wood. The precision of the inlay work is remarkable. The chess board has 2.125" squares accentuated by a beautiful sycamore delimiter and surrounded by an extra wide frame with a black molded edge. The overall size of the board is 21.5" and is .5" thick. Whether a collector or you are looking for one special chess set to display in your home, the Fierce Knight will enhance the pleasure of every game you play.
