The Minstral is an American Staunton pattern which is a double-weighted boxwood chess set that has been heavily lacquered in a rich black and white. The set features a 3.75" King with good double weighting.
We have recently changed this model to include FELT bottoms (previously FAUX leather). The King has a base diameter of nearly 1.75".
A standard chess club chessboard with 2" squares is recommended for this set and is not included.
