4 1/4" Mark of Westminster Ebony Luxe Imperial Crown 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 and includes a lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each chess piece is hand-carved, well weighted, has felt bottoms, and extra queens.

These extremely well weighted 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. Ebony Chess Pieces are one of the most classic woods used for chessmen.  Pure ebony is jet black all the way through - most often they are lacquered and finished for consistency and go with virtually any wood.This is a premier hardwood, compared most often in price to Padouk. 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 Imperial Crown features elaborate detailing on the queen's crown and stylish knight for a fantastic high-end display chess set.  These pieces are paired with a 20" executive style chess board with 2 1/4" Squares. The executive style chess board features a handsome pinstripe to go with any decor, and a smaller border to make it more suitable to a variety of tables and spaces without being overwhelming.

Pieces crafted in India, Board imported from Spain. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
