The Spanih Pulpit
The  Spanih Pulpit

An extraordinary amount of hand carving has gone into this unique design of figurine chessmen in a boxwood and budrosewood combination. The original form was carved between 1770 and 1830. It has also been attributed to the Napoleonic prisoners of war and there is a mystery that surrounds the original source of the Pulpit set. These sets also have a strong English and Colonial connection.

The King measures 4 1/4" and has a base diameter of 1 1/4" with green felt pads. The higher price is attributable to the fact that all the pieces are hand carved unlike Staunton pattern sets where most pieces are turned on a lathe. In addition, these pieces are made of bud rosewood, an exotic wood which is scarce and expensive.
