4 1/4" Mark of Westminster Padouk Luxe Imperial Crown Staunton 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 and includes a lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each chess piece is hand-carved, well weighted, has felt bottoms, and extra queens.

These extremely well weighted chess pieces are Padouk and Boxwood, which are most often paired with Mahogany and Macassar chess boards, but will also go with most dark woods as well. Padouk Chess Pieces vary from a light red to a deep red wine color, and is well regarded as one of the most exclusive exotic woods used for chess pieces. It is a hard wood, with a strong grain variation. The wide variety of colors make them quite unique, with the age of wood being the most common factor in the difference. This is a premier hardwood, compared most often in price to Ebony. 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.

The Imperial Crown features elaborate detailing on the queen's crown and stylish knight for a fantastic high-end display chess set.  This set is paired with the stylish and sleek executive style chess board.  The chessboard is 20" x 20" with a 2 1/4" square; a tournament sized chessboard.  This board features a more narrow border allowing it to fit on a wider variety of tables without overwhelming the space. A handsome black pinstripe around the squares allow it to adapt with many decor and color combinations.

Pieces crafted in India, Board imported from Spain. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
