This 34 piece chess set is very luxurious, and consistent with TheChessPiece.com pricing policy is very affordable allowing volume sales to many chess players and collectors. This stunning chess set is now also available with a choice of pad material of either leather or green felt.
The picture above contrasts the boxwood pieces with the opposing ebony pieces.
Featuring a triple-weighted 4" King, this set is made in both traditional boxwood (white pieces) and pure ebony (opposing pieces).The rooks have very finely cut crenallations (as in battlements in a castle) and are supplied with turret caps which are supplied loose, so a player can if he uses these, change the look of these pieces. Turret caps are provided because it is very difficult to provide a polished finish inside the rook's turret due to the direction of the grain of the wood.
The pieces are triple weighted and we even offer a choice of either leather or green pads.
In addition as can be seen from the mouse-over pictures below the King is supplied with two finials!
The Queen has a very intricately carved coronet and the bishops have deep, broad mitres.
Here's more pictures (mouse-over for another view) showing the pieces mixed.
Set weight: 4 lbs 8 Ounces.
The King's base diameter is 1 3/4" and we recommend a chessboard with either 2" or 2 1/8" squares. A chessboard with contrasting square colors do ofter enhance the appearance of the chess pieces.
Extra Queens supplied as standard.
This set is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity and is ONLY available from The Chess Piece chess sets store as we designed this set ourselves.
