20" Ebony Legionnaires Executive 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 printed certificate of authenticity that serves as a lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each chess piece is hand-carved, has green felt-bottoms and extra queens.

Ebonywood Chess Pieces are the prize choice of many chess aficionados. The purest ebony has little grain, and is jet black in color. Ebony is an extremely rare and hard wood, and is often seen in heirloom quality chess pieces.

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 decour. Less than 100 of these chess boards are produced each year, and each come with a certificate of authenticity with seriel number.

Walnut is a brown wood that is considered a staple for chess boards. The Mark of Westminster Walnut boards use European Walnut, which is not as dark as the black walnut seen in North America. The heartwood varies in color but it typically has a grayish-brown background with irregular dark streaks. The grain is normally straight, but may occasionally be wavy. European walnut has a high natural durability.
