15 1/2" Mark of Westminster Classics Honey Rosewood Executive American Staunton Basic 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 lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each set is hand-carved and weighted with felt bottoms and extra queens. The German design is quite popular, with a classic, very playable look and feel.

These chess pieces are Honey Rosewood and Boxwood, which is often paired with Walnut, Teak, or other light to medium brown wood chess boards. Honey Rosewood Chess Pieces are a soft, easy to work with light to medium brown wood. There is a fair amount of grain, and is an excellent choice if you want an inexpensive natural look. 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.

There is little basic about our boards with rounded corners. Each features a stylish mosaic and ample border size making them an attractive, affordable option for chess boards in a number of sizes. This board suits traditional staunton chessmen and unique theme chessmen well as both a display or play board. This board is made from MDF with a Rosewood or Ebony and Maple Finish.

Pieces and Board made in India. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
