Mark of Westminster Ebonized Legionnaires Staunton - 5" King

Mark of Westminster Chess Pieces are the paradigm of perfection in wood staunton chess piece design. The premier chess pieces by Mark Of Westminster have been known for their heirloom quality. Each chess set is exclusive, with a printed certificate of authenticity that serves as a lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each chess piece is hand-carved, has leather-bottoms, extra queens, and the signature Mark of Westminster Logo beneath the king.

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.

Chessboard Not Included. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.

  • King Height: 5"

One of the best large piece chess sets made
5 out of 5
Daren Smith
Location: Alameda,Ca.
Date: February 4, 2016
Just over 2 years age I was shopping for a chess set with a king height of 4 plus inches and found one fo these sets bring sold by a local game store in Berkeley Ca. After looking looking it over and feeling the weight of the kings, i brought it and a board with 2.50 inch squares to use at my local chess club. I was impressed with the over all quality of the carving of the pieces no flaws that I could see. Next the weight was impressive at 118o/z it compares well with the HOS sets of 4.4 and 6 inches. The pieces feel natural in one's hand are very stable. For $289.95 retail this set is a BEST BUY when compared to sets made and and sold by other companies. Now don't get me wrong sets from HOS and J of L have set a high standard for high end chess sets, but for the money this one can't be beat.
