4" Heritage Collection Mark of Westminster Ebonized Earl Staunton Chess Pieces

The Mark of Westminster Heritage Collection features some of the finest heirloom quality chess men available today. These chess pieces are extremely well weighted and each set includes extra queens. These Staunton chess sets feature the finest hand carved detail possible as well as red leather bases. Each set includes a certificate of authenticity as well as the Mark of Westminster logo beneath each king.

This is the large Ebonized and Boxwood version of the Earl design, and is best suited for 2" - 2 1/4" chess boards.

Earl Design:
The very heavy Earl pieces are a fairly traditional Staunton design with emphasis on the knight. The knight has a well detailed main and perked, upright ears. The slightly open mouth shows the teeth of the horse, and the extended back gives the illusion of the piece being in motion.

These chess pieces are Ebonized and Boxwood, which can suit virtually any board color, however Walnut, Teak, and Ebonized chess boards are most popular.

Ebonized Chess Pieces are actually Boxwood pieces lacquered black, giving them a pure black appearance almost identical to ebony, but for a fraction of the cost.

Boxwood Chess Pieces are the near universal standard for 'white' chess pieces in hand-carved sets. It is a fairly easy wood to work with, and shows off good detail.
