This is the bud rosewood (rare Red Sandalwood) version of our popular ebony set. This truly magnificent chess set is often bought as family room 'display and play' pieces.
Here's a close-up of the knights, truly beautiful! Look closely at the delicate carving of the mane, the curled forelock, long pointed ears and the beautiful colors- each chess piece is a piece of furniture!
This is unquestionably a grand set with leather pads and massively weighted. The King weighs 6.2 ounces! A board with a minimum square size of 2 1/2" is recommended for this set as shown below and is available as an option. The base of the King is almost 2" (1 15/16") in diameter [Leather pad diameter 1.5"]. This chess set comes with a pair of additional queens as standard.
The bud rosewood pieces are exquisite and display different colors when viewed in different lighting conditions.
This chess set is supplied by Chopra in India and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
