These chess pieces are Ebonized and Boxwood, which can suit virtually any board color, however Walnut, Teak, and Ebonized chess boards are most popular. Ebonized Chess Pieces are actually Boxwood pieces lacquered black, giving them a pure black appearance almost identical to ebony, but for a fraction of the cost. 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.

This luxurious chess board from Turkey is sure to impress. This opulent chess board blends artistry with chess fantastically and would look wonderful with traditional staunton and unique theme chessmen. This board is a wonderful addition to any chess collection.

Chess pieces made in India. Chess board made in Turkey. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional. This board is available in Mazel, Black and Walnut. Please choose a color.
