Heirloom Tournament Ebonized Phalanx 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 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. The Phalanx Knight has an extremely well detailed curvature, as well as a prominent cross.
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.
This fantastic storage chess board is a classic black paired with maple, a standard for the white squares in chess boards. The chess board removes to reveal a storage compartment. The board has no border to save on space leaving it a very modern look that can go with both new and old chess pieces and works well with both theme and traditional staunton chessmen.
