Product Description

  • Weighted for perfect balance.

  • Ideal for boards 18 inches (46 cm) or larger.
Sourced from our Italian friends, Italfama in Florence, these beautiful chess pieces are based on the traditional Staunton style but with a slightly more ornate flair about them. Called The Trapani after the city in Sicily, these chess men are a lovely addition to our chess piece range. acacia wood is fast becoming a very popular material for chess men and these pieces are a perfect example of why it works so well.

This particular design is very elegant with the carvings are a little more ornate than usual. They offer really detailed and exquisitely carved knights in particular. Each piece is comfortably weighted, have felted bases and are naturally polished to a soft sheen finish. They are beautifully presented in an Italfama branded presentation sturdy card box, with a protective insert that gives each piece its own compartment to keep them protected. These acacia chessmen are perfect for combining with playing boards of 18 inches (46 cm) or larger.

We have matched them with two different boards to give two completely looks. The beautiful black anegre with palisander border and also the stunning 17.75 inch walnut board, both from the famous board maker Rechapados Ferrer of Spain.
