Product Description

  • Expertly handcrafted.
  • Classic Staunton design.
  • 3 inch (76 mm) king.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with billiard cloth.
  • Presented with a superb 17.75 inch (45 cm) walnut and maple board.
  • Complete with a beautiful burl effect case.
A traditional looking chess set that combines our new Highgrove Ebonised Staunton Chessmen with a classic walnut deluxe chessboard. The chessmen have a king height of 3 inches and are hand turned and carved from solid box wood.

The attention to detail is staggering. The bases are wide for a 3 inch set and they sweep up elegantly to the shanks. The finish is achieved by multiple stages of hand polishing using only natural polishes and waxes.

The set is very generously weighted for its size and each piece features a resilient green baize base which not only protects the board surface but allows the pieces to glide nicely. The chessboard is constructed using European walnut and maple veneers, beautifully framed by a thin inlaid band of ebony which complements the ebonised chess pieces well.

Finally the set includes a compact burl wood chess piece case that provides a way of stowing the chess pieces when not needed. A wonderful traditional Staunton set that cannot fail to impress.

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.
