18" Mark of Westminster Classics Weighted Ebonized Executive New Lardy Staunton Presidential Chess Set

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 lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each set is hand-carved, well weighted with felt bottoms, and extra queens. The Lardy design is one of our most popular styles, with a classic, playable look and feel. It finds its roots in the traditional chess sets that dominated the past century of chess.  

These hand carved pieces include extra queens and are weighted for balance and optimal feel.

The weighted lardy staunton chess pieces have been paired with the Presidential style chessboard - these chess boards by Mark of Westminster are premier, furniture quality, real-wood veneer inlays. This style, available only through the Mark of Westminster line, is a quarter inch thicker than most other chess boards. Most noticeable, the Presidential Series has black beveled edging that brings added elegance without appearing too busy. It also a unique mosaic with maple, mahogany, and black that is not only stylish, but also brings in color that allows it to match well with virtually any chess set. These boards have felt-pad feet for protection of both the board and your own furniture. Less than 100 of these chess boards are produced each year and are available in a variety of finishes.
