Sizing and Details
16" Mark of Westminster Classics Ebonized German Executive Staunton 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. The German design is quite 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.
The Executive chess boards by Mark of Westminster are premier, furniture quality, real-wood veneer inlays. This style, available only through the Mark of Westminster line, maximizes the square to border ratio in order to fit a larger square on a smaller table. It also has a sharp black pinstripe, enabling the board to go with nearly any decor.
