This package includes our Wellington Staunton Chess Set in African Padauk and Boxwood matched with Italfama's Elm Burl and Erable (whitened bird's-eye maple) chess board. 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 unusually large making them easy to handle during the game. The king is 4.4" tall with a 2" 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.

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. This heirloom quality chess set made from exotic woods is not only a good investment for these times but it will make every chess game all the more enjoyable and is sure to become one of your treasured possessions that will be handed down for generations.
