This is the redwood 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 redwood pieces are exquisite and display different colors when viewed in different lighting conditions.
We recommend a chessboard with 2 1/2" squares and which is not included at this price. Given the size of the knights a larger board would not be inappropriate.
