Product Description

Superb value wooden chess set bundle that features solid wood chessmen and quality wooden polished chess board. Includes our 3 Inch king Down head chess pieces, also known as the German Knight, finished from solid natural Sheesham Wood and Boxwood. They are hand finished with a natural waxes, are weighted and have green felted bases.

They have been matched with our 16 inch European tournament chess board, a combination of veneered rich mahogany and maple. In addition, we have included our polished Birch chess box to keep the pieces. The robust hardwoods and expert craftsmanship mean this set will last for years of enduring chess games.

Buying this set as a bundle represents superb value for money and a significant saving when compared to buying all three products separately.

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.

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.

"Fabulous chess set in every way. Beautiful board, pieces and box. Just perfect at a great price."

L Crossfield, 11th November 2020

"Well made and packaged."

D Orton, 6th November 2020

"My first quality chess set, and now that I know what's available, probably not my last. Beautifully crafted pieces, not too light, felted well so they stand straight and sturdy. The board has an excellent vertical micro-groove finish and the satin finish is smashing. And it was delivered within 3 days. I'd have given 5 stars if only the storage box was big enough for the lid to close properly while allowing the king piece to stand like the other pieces do. but they will all fit if you lie the king down. Also the box does not have any felt."
