23" Mark of Westminster Rosewood Equinox Deluxe Beveled Chess Set
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, well weighted, has felt bottoms, extra queens, and the signature Mark of Westminster Logo beneath the king.
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.
Included is our Deluxe Walnut Beveled Chess Board. Walnut is a brown wood that is considered a staple for chess boards. Walnut pairs beautifully with these Rosewood chess pieces.
Chess pieces and chess board made in India. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
