4 1/2" Mark of Westminster Ebony Conqueror Staunton Chess Pieces 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.

Deluxe humidor style storage box included. Chessboard Not Included. Made in India

Phenomenal! Never in my 60 years of playing chess have I encountered a set of chess pieces that even comes near to the beauty, style and weight of this magnificent set. The Kings are so majestic with their brilliant stainless steel crosses and broad hefty bases...the Queens are beautifully proportioned works of art that can not easily be toppled...the Knights are exquisitely designed and carved to perfection...the Rooks, bishops and pawns are all clever takes on that timeless Staunton theme. I want to personally thank the designers, craftsmen and carvers tor producing this outstanding and playable set, and I think it should be used in World Championship Matches!!
