Product Description

  • Expertly handcrafted chessmen.
  • 3.25 inch (83 mm) king.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with billiard cloth.
  • Presented with an 19 inch (48.5 cm) mahogany and maple board.
  • Complete with a beautiful solid birchwood case.
A contemporary chess set that includes everything required as one package. The 3.25 inch French Knight Chessmen have been turned from solid boxwood and stained to create a very convincing looking ebony effect. Finished with a fine polish, single weighted and with felted bases, they sit proudly on our Mahogany and Maple European Chess Board.

Also included is a solid birchwood box for storing the chess pieces. The combination of these three products results in a beautiful chess set with a clear sense of quality and design. The robust hardwoods and expert craftsmanship mean this set will last for years.

Buying this set as a bundle represents superb value for money and a significant saving when compared with purchasing 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.

Product Reviews

"Absolutely brilliant! Goods purchased were of a high standard and the staff were extremely helpful with my delivery problems."

S Brindley, 4th July 2021

"Very happy with the set overall, one of the knights was slightly chipped which was a shame. Apart from that its a very good set and the delivery was prompt"

A Chivers, 20th June 2021

"Received as a present and I am very pleased. As an occasional player, with a child who is now quite keen I decided a serious upgrade was required from the 40 year old small portable set with tiny plastic pieces combined from two similar yet mis-sized sets! What a joy to play with; the pieces are beautifully weighted, pawns seem so much more useful when they feel solid in the hand, the size of the board means you can really get a sense of the battle in progress. The board and pieces are excellent quality and I especially ally like the quality of the inlaid squares. I’m knocking off a star, however, for the box. The outside is fine, the inside unfinished with loose wood shavings. The metal pins securing the clasp protruded into the box by 1mm, I have filed them down and have bought some felt to line the box but it would be a crying shame to have ended up with scratched pieces because of this shoddy attention to detail in design and manufacture."

"Absolutely 10/10"

C Arlow, 4th December 2020

"Good quality, very well packaged"

M Johnson, 23rd April 2020

"There are many Luxury boards on this site many of which are outside of my price range, if your looking for a top quality chess set that isn’t really cheap but also doesn’t cost over £300 then this is perfect. I’m very happy with this product."

L Finch, 3rd December 2019

"The knights would deserve a little more attention as to the impression they give, they are by far, in my opinion, the pieces you can make the most “alive”."

P Sempéré, 10th February 2019

"A beautiful set that will last for years. excellent quality"
