Product Description

Distinctive and characterful chess set matching the Blackmore series sheesham chessmen with a very high quality mahogany 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 supplied wooden chess board is constructed from veneers of European Mahogany and Birch an d is finished in a robust satin lacquer. A large set that measures almost 22 inches across, it will certainly take pride of place in the home.

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.

"Excellent quality chess set. Satisfying sound as the pieces are placed on the board!"

"a gift for a beginner who seems genuinely thrilled with it."

M Morrissey, 20th December 2020

"Stunning quality pieces that are perfectly weighted. The knights are just gorgeous and the rooks very sleek & elegant.I actually went with the larger 23" board which is lovely too although I suspect a "0" board would have been more manageable and easier to place I couldn't be happier with the product or the customer service which was excellent. I very much look forward to my next purchase...decisions decisions!"
