We ordered a travel chess set for our Grandson's birthday present to be sent direct to him. We were kept informed of delivery progress and it arrived - as hoped - the day before his birthday. Apparently it is as good as it appeared on the website and he is absolutely thrilled with it.

Second time I've used this company and would be my first choice again. The small set I bought for training was high quality, with perfectly weighted pieces. Delivery was prompt and the set was well packaged.

Product Description

  • Traditional Staunton design.
  • Superb detail and finish.
  • 3.5 inch (88.9 mm) king.
  • Beautifully carved from boxwood.
  • Weighted and felted.
  • Perfect for a 20 inch (50 cm) board.

For a slightly larger set of pieces, The Abingdon 3.5 inch Ebonised Chess Men are expertly crafted with beautiful detail following the classic Staunton design. With its 3.5 inch king, these pieces are superbly finish and perfectly weighted for their size. They boast beautiful carvings, especially on the knight as they are supplied by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest hand crafted chessmen. To create the look of ebony, boxwood pieces are put through a chemical process of ebonization. The results are a very effective ebony look but not the price tag. With this size of king and the broad felted bases, these chess men will sit perfectly on boards from 18 inches to 20 inches.
