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 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.
