Ranging from the affordable Executive Series to modern Pyramidal Series and the premier Presidential Series, this exclusive line of high luxury items are heirloom quality and made for nearly any budget:

The Executive Series chessboards feature Mark of Westminster quality in remarkable prices compared to many of the other available options on the market. These chessboards have a smaller border making them ideal for tight spaces. These boards are available with a square from 1.5" - 2.5" in diameter.

The Pyramidal Series chessboards feature Mark of Westminster quality in moderately priced packages. These chessboards have a more modern feel with a long angled edge. This black edging not only goes with virtually any style of chess pieces, but it allows a more traditional set of chessmen to be used in a more modern home decor. These boards are available with a square size of either 1.75" or 2.25".

The Presidential Series feature Mark of Westminster quality for the collector or true connoisseur. These top-of-the-line chess boards are thicker than most others chessboards available, and have a unique edging in addition to a mosaic around the playing surface. These boards are available with a square size from 1.75" - 2.25".

For those looking for an inexpensive, no frills option, we also have a large selection of economically priced boards in a variety of styles and sizes. These are great for when you need a board to play the game, but not necessarily an option you need to leave out on display.
