This new 4 1/2" King design features some very unusal embelishments.
The King measures 4 1/2" and weighs 3.8 ounces with an enlarged leather pad diameter of 1 7/8" and is offered with a choice of pad material either leather or green felt.. A key aspect of this set is the extreme routing in the chess pieces body and bases which is highly appealing and a superbly crafted rook and queen let alone the unique knight which stands so proudly!
This would make a fine display chess set for any upmarket home library, with the beauty of the wood showing exuberant hues and fashioning. Take a look at the white pieces:
The carving of the rook deserves worthy attention too:
Here's a picture of the pieces together showing the contrast between the two woods.
The complete set weighs just over 6 lbs and is supplied with two extra queens as standard.
All the pictures were taken on our optional new executive flat rosewood chess board with a square size of 2 3/8".
This chess set is currently only available in the bud rosewood/boxwood version as shown.
