19" Mark of Westminster Ebonized French Staunton Chess Set with Storage Drawer Chess Board
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 lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each set is hand-carved and weighted with felt bottoms, extra queens, and the signature Mark of Westminster Logo beneath the king. The French design is our most popular, with a classic, very playable look and feel.
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 Macassar and Maple storage chess board with drawers is ideal for our 4" theme chess pieces but can be used for many staunton designs as well. It has two felt-lined pull out drawers.
Chess pieces made in India. Chess board made in China. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
