Product Description

  • Presented on a 21.7 inch board.
  • Beautifully ornate Staunton design.
  • Imperious 4 inch King.
  • Two additional Queens.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with high quality billiard cloth.
Presented on a stunning 21.7 inch walnut and maple board from Spain, this makes for an enviable chess set.

The Columbus chessmen, expertly handcrafted from solid ebony, are weighted for perfect balance. The rich ebony and the superb finish give these pieces the look and feel of pure luxury.

The 4 inch king is elegantly simple in design. Additional carvings to the sleek shank together with his wide base and decorative finial, however, make him a majestic leader.

The knights are exquisite and intricate in detail, with alert ears, flowing manes and chiselled bone structure. This gives them an ornamental quality that contributes to this being a set that customers often keep permanently on display.

The Columbus Chess Men are also available without the board. Either way, this makes an ideal gift for any chess enthusiast.
