This superb chess set combines our extra special Elegant Series Staunton Chess Pieces with our new Luxury Palisander and Black Anegre Chess Board. The chessmen are classic Staunton and have been sourced from the world's finest producer of wooden chess sets. The quality is extremely fine with accurate carvings and consistent, flawless finish. They have been made from clean grained boxwood and genuine Indian ebony. The ebony is high grade and makes this a very valuable and collectable set.
Each piece has been correctly weighted in the base for perfect balance; something you will fully appreciate as you begin to move the pieces around the board. The knights have been carved with excellent consistency and hold an amazing amount of detail. The same person is responsible for carving all four knights in the set so they are as identical as human hands will allow.
The board has been selected from Europe's premier manufacturer of chess boards for its quality, finish and stunning design. The wooden veneers feature rich tones and vivid grains with a magical contrast between the black and maple squares and the palisander border. The overall effect is highly attractive and it complements the chess pieces perfectly by providing just the right amount of contrast. The board measures just under eighteen inches across (45 cm) and has been manufactured without fault and finished in a rich, high gloss lacquer.
A combination of extremely high quality pieces and a uniquely distinctive board make this set highly desirable.
