4" Mark of Westminster Rosewood Phalanx Staunton Chess Pieces

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 Phalanx Knight has an extremely well detailed curvature, as well as a prominent cross.

These chess pieces are Rosewood and Boxwood, which can suit virtually any board color, however Mahogany, Macassar, and Walnut chess boards are most popular. Rosewood Chess Pieces vary from medium to dark brown, and is preferred due to is handsome, elegant appearance and strong grain variation. As a midrange wood, it is more affordable than some of the more exotic rosewoods, but still has a suitably rich appearance. 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 Exclusive Mark of Westminster Storage boxes are elegantly designed so that you can proudly display it alongside your chess set. The box has two felted compartments for your chess pieces. Each box has the Mark of Westminster seal embossed beneath the lid. This box has a felted bottom so it does not scuff or scratch.

Made in India. Chess board not included. Deluxe walnut finish humidor style storage box included.
