Product Description

This superb quality chess set combines the unique Blackmore series sheesham chessmen with a very high quality walnut and maple board. The chess pieces have been sourced from what we believe is the worlds finest producer of wooden chessmen. They have been expertly made from clean grained boxwood and sheesham, a rich golden wood that is full of stunning grains and tones. The design of the chessmen encompasses a very distinctive shank. While the design remains firmly in the Staunton camp the straight shanks have become curved, and visa versa. This makes the rook the most distinctive and original of the set, with a smooth curved body, as opposed to the usual tapered design. The pieces have been weighted in their bases to acquire just the right amount of balance and their proportions make them extremely satisfying to play chess with.  

The board is one of our superb deluxe walnut and maple examples which has been sourced from Europe for it's excellent quality, perfect finish and flawless manufacturing. It features a lovely satin finish which provides contrast against the polished hardwood chessmen, while retaining complementary tones and grains. A large set that measures almost 22 inches across, it will certainly take pride of place in the home and forms an excellent display piece when not being used.  

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.

"Amazing value for money. Very high quality. Looks a lot better in person than on the photos."

"Very happy indeed with my new Blackmore Grandmaster Chess set. Was a great price too at £190 and worth every penny. The board fills the table, and the pieces are not only great to look at but feel great in the hand and are nicely weighted when in play. Came with 2 spare Queens also, which was very nice. Id strongly recommend this set to anybody who enjoys chess and is looking for a high quality set. And at such a discount it makes it even better! Delivery was fantastic too - Ordered Saturday afternoon arrived the following Wednesday (Considering the backlog of orders) Excellent company, will certainly be a returning customer for all my chess needs in the future - Thankyou!"
