4 3/4" Mark of Westminster Ebony Aurora 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 comes with a lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each chess piece is hand-carved, has felted bottoms and extra queens.

These 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.
