A contemporary chess set that includes everything required as one package. The 3.25 inch French Knight Chessmen have been turned from solid boxwood and stained to create a very convincing looking ebony effect. Finished with a fine polish, single weighted and with felted bases, they sit proudly on our Mahogany and Maple European veneered Chess Board.

Also included is a solid birchwood box for storing the chess pieces. The combination of these three products results in a beautiful chess set with a clear sense of quality and design. The robust hardwoods and expert craftsmanship mean this set will last for years.

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.

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.
