Product Description

This lovely chess set combines our highly acclaimed Antipodean Staunton chessmen with a superb quality wenge and maple board. The result of this combination is an elegant and distinctive chess set of outstanding quality and finish. The chess pieces have been expertly crafted from rosewood and boxwood, are weighted in their bases for perfect balance and have felted bases. The quality of the rosewood used on the dark chessmen is outstanding. The flowing grains and deep rich colours accentuate the beautiful design and adds a real sense of luxury to these pieces. Of course the unique thing about the chessmen is the sparse use of the opposing colour on the Kings, queens and bishops.  

The board has been manufactured to precise tolerances from veneers of wenge and maple. It's been lacquered to a satin finish and is durable enough to withstand many years of chess playing. The dark rich tones of the board are in perfect harmony with the polished rosewood chessmen, the match of both together is perfect. The uniformity of the chessmen is superb, with sets made up from matching tones of rosewood and only the cleanest grained boxwood used for the white pieces. An extremely high quality set that has come from two of the worlds finest producers of chess products. A board that has been made without compromise to precise dimensions and with a flawless finish, and a set of chess pieces that sets new standards in terms of their quality and design.    

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.
