This beautiful chess set includes our Wellington Staunton with genuine ebony and boxwood pieces matched with exclusive Mission Craft South American Walnut and Maple Chess Board. This eye-catching chess set is a true show piece with its obsidian black and boxwood pieces standing against the backdrop of the chocolate and maple color chess board. Named for the Duke of Wellington whom defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The Wellington blends contemporary and traditional Staunton design resulting in a truly unique chess set from every angle. The knights are extraordinary with finely carved detail including the mane, eyes, ears, nostrils, and teeth. The other pieces are equally impressive with beautiful profiles and shapes. The lathe work is remarkable with compound collars and eloquent lines perfectly turned into each piece. Even the design of the rook stands out with a unique parapet and crenellations. The pawns are large making them easy to handle during the game. The king is 4.25 inches tall with a 2 inch wide base and features an ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The pieces are triple-weighted to produce a low-center of gravity and exceptional stability on the chess board. The pieces are padded with thick green baize for a nice cushion when picking up and moving or sliding across the chess board. The pieces are individually hand polished to beautiful luster.
