Created by our skilled craftsmen, The Rochester Ebony Chess Men are, without doubt, deluxe quality, large elegant and exquisitely finished in ebony and graded boxwood. These chess men start life as a solid block of wood, that is then painstakingly and expertly crafted into an individual work of art. Each carved figure is well balanced and weighted and polished to a very high sheen without the use of artificial or synthetic waxes or lacquers. The timeless and classic carving and elegant wide bases make these ideally proportioned chess ornaments.

As you would expect from a luxury set of chess pieces, The Rochester Ebony Chess Men also offers you four queens.

These outstanding chess pieces deserve nothing less than an equally outstanding board and it is difficult not to be impressed by this extra large chess board produced by master chess board maker Rechapados Ferrer of Spain. High grade walnut and maple veneered construction is used throughout, including the base. Modern fabrication techniques are utilised to provide a truly impressive chess board with clean lines and critical detailing. The walnut used has stunning colouring with dense grain, abundant in dark rich tones. The rich browns, reds and yellows of the walnut really complement the black ebony and yellow boxwood chessmen creating a very traditional looking chess set.

Whilst this set has not been matched with a box for the pieces, in the event you would want to hide them away, please check out our range of chess piece cases and cabinets.

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.
