4 1/4" Mark of Westminster Padouk Old World Staunton Chess Pieces

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 chess piece is hand-carved, well weighted, has felt bottoms and extra queens.

These chess pieces are Padouk and Boxwood, which are most often paired with Mahogany and Macassar chess boards, but will also go with most dark woods as well. Padouk Chess Pieces vary from a light red to a deep red wine color, and is well regarded as one of the most exclusive exotic woods used for chess pieces. It is a hard wood, with a strong grain variation. The wide variety of colors make them quite unique, with the age of wood being the most common factor in the difference. This is a premier hardwood, compared most often in price to Ebony. 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 Exclusive Mark of Westminster Storage boxes are elegantly designed so that you can proudly display it alongside your chess set. The box has two felted compartments for your chess pieces. Each box has the Mark of Westminster seal embossed beneath the lid. This box has a felted bottom so it does not scuff or scratch.

Made in India. Chess board not included. Deluxe cherry finish humidor style storage box included.
