The Executive chess boards by Mark of Westminster are premier, furniture quality, real-wood veneer inlays. This style, available only through the Mark of Westminster line, maximizes the square to border ratio in order to fit a larger square on a smaller table. It also has a sharp, black pinstripe, enabling the board to go with nearly any decour. Less than 100 of these chess boards are produced each year, and each come with a certificate of authenticity with seriel number.

Ebonized Birds Eye Maple is for the individual looking for a pure black board. The dark squares are lacquered black with a matte finish, which has no grain whatsoever. Birds Eye Maple is known to have a number of knots and curls which can sometimes be seen in the light squares of these boards. The maple is a good complement to the boxwood used in chess pieces, so this board complements all types of woods, although particularly well with ebonized or ebony chess pieces.

Made in Spain.

So beautiful
5 out of 5

Location: Richmond, VA
Date: October 10, 2015
This board is beautifully made with imperceptible seams. It has a sort of matte/egg shell surface with a strong and attractive contrast between the light and dark squares.The edge is lovely, too - subtle and classy, yet quietly decorative. I wanted something pretty and classic with at least a nod to aesthetics but not over the top - the edge and pinstripe inlay is decorative but the board still stays practical in that it doesn't extend the board excessively. I paired this board with the 3" MoW Ebony Chess Pieces - Imperator Staunton and the pairing is pretty stunning. I currently have it set up on a dresser in my guest room. It adds a warmth and inviting energy to the room. One word of caution when unpacking - the packing is fine, no worries there - but when I took it out and set it on my kitchen table which I thought was clean, I was mistaken and there were a couple pieces of grit on the table. So, when I slid it forward a little I scratched the bottom - just little scratches, but still, I wish I had thought to be more careful. So, when you take it out of the box, set it on a cloth and admire your decision to buy this absolutely beautiful board.
