23" Mark of Westminster Ebony Equinox 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 chess piece is hand-carved, well weighted, has felt bottoms and extra queens. 

The Equinox Staunton features a modern twist to a classic chess set with sleek modern lines with still easily identifiable chessmen. The ebonywood and boxwood version features high quality ebony - nearly jet black with almost no noticable grain in opposition to the classic boxwood seen in most staunton chess piece sets.

The equinox 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.

The Presidential Board is Tournament size with 2 1/4" Squares (approximately 23" overall)
