Luxury Competition Staunton Chess pieces, crafted from solid boxwood and ebonised boxwood. The attention to detail is staggering. The knights feature distinctive, aggressive features with a well defined mane and flared nostrils. Beautifully weighted and balanced, the pieces are presented in a hand made solid sheesham chess piece case which is lined inside with green flock. Polished with natural waxes, the case is a work of art on its own!
The chess board is moderately large at 21 inches square. Made from sustainable mahogany and maple in Europe, it provides the perfect platform to display these wonderful chessmen. Classic Staunton from start to finish, this chess set includes everything one needs and represents outstanding value for money considering the level of finish and beauty.
We have sourced the various parts for this chess set from two key chess suppliers. Firstly the board, this comes from the worlds largest, and arguably the best, producer of chess boards in Spain, Rechapados Ferrer. We opted for the Spanish version over and above the cheaper Polish one to ensure that this set maintains the highest precision and quality. The pieces and box come from one of our favourite producers of high quality chessmen. A classic Staunton set, nicely weighted and very solid. They are the perfect complement for the mahogany chess board.
