The New American Ebony Chessmen
The New American Ebony Chessmen

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.

The New American set is made of solid ebony and features jet black 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.

These two pictures show the different finials supplied with this luxury chess set!











Here's more pictures (mouse-over for another view) showing the pieces mixed.

The New American Chess set. Picture shows the mixed chess pieces on the optional chess board.

















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.

The New American

- 11/4/2010

Elegant, refined, heirloom quality describe this beautiful chess set. I bought it as a triple decker along with the African Padauk board and when my daughter walked into the den and saw it she said, "Oh, Wow!" Needless to say, her appreciation of this purchase has me sold on getting another set that I have my eye on. You won't go wrong with a set from The Chess Piece.

it will be a family treasure for generations

This set is just gorgeous, it will be a family treasure for generations ... I have never seen or handled a knight with such presence and power ... the attention to detail is extraordinary, and the "feel" is well balanced and solid. The lines of the other pieces are equally powerful and refined - the pictures do not even come close to doing them justice. This is by far the most beautifully designed and executed set I have ever played. I could go on and on. If you are considering this set, do not hesitate - you will be delighted with it!

"It seems that I often find myself attracted visually to graceful things, and this chess set was no exception

"It seems that I often find myself attracted visually to graceful things, and this chess set was no exception. Spend just a brief time comparing the design of these pieces with those of other high-end chess sets, and you may discover, as I did, that this set possesses a sense of artistry which you won’t easily find in comparably-priced sets. I ordered the ebony set with the executive 21-inch striped ebony board, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with it. When you hold the pieces in your hand, feel their substantial (yet unencumbering) weight, and see them displayed on the board, you realise the organic curves of this Staunton design flawlessly coupled with the degree of precision evident in the craftsmanship, and that these pieces were painstakingly handcrafted and not manufactured ‘en masse’, stamped out of or extruded into a mould like the cheap plastic regulation Staunton pieces every chess enthusiast has encountered. Indeed, the knight— as perhaps the single most commonly varied piece between differing...
