Sizing and Details
18" Mark of Westminster Honey Rosewood Imperator Presidential Staunton Chess Set
The Imperator design has a very classic chess piece style with the right amount of ornate detail. These chess pieces are Honey Rosewood and Boxwood, which is often paired with Walnut, Teak, or other light to medium brown wood chess boards. Honey Rosewood Chess Pieces are a soft, easy to work with light to medium brown wood. There is a fair amount of grain, and is an excellent choice if you want an inexpensive natural look. 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 Presidential luxury 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.
