18" Mark of Westminster Ebony Conqueror Staunton Luxury Chess Set with Steel Bases

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 felt-bottoms and extra queens.

The Conqueror Staunton chessmen are some of the heaviest chess pieces we’ve ever seen as well as some of the most luxurious. These chess pieces are unique with steel plug inserts for the base that make them extremely heavy, resistant to cracking, and add a unique and modern flair. The chess set also features three different finials. Not only is there the steel cross, but also a more traditional wooden cross and a signature “W” for the Westminster collection. This allows some flexibility in how modern or traditional you’d like your chess pieces to be.

These extremely well weighted chess pieces are Ebonywood and Boxwood, which can suit virtually any board color, however Walnut, Teak, Wengue, and Ebonized chess boards are most popular. Ebonywood Chess Pieces are the prize choice of many chess aficionados. The purest ebony has little grain, and is jet black in color. Ebony is an extremely rare and hard wood, and is often seen in heirloom quality chess pieces.

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. Less than 100 of these chess boards are produced each year, and each come with a certificate of authenticity with serial number.
