21" Ebony Hoplites Traditional 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 leather-bottoms, extra queens, and the signature Mark of Westminster Logo beneath the king. This is the tournament size version of our Hoplites design.

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.

This chess board features Wengue and Sycamore squares with a very clean design. It has a good sized border and a sycamore pinstripe to emphasize the playing surface. Wengue is a popular dark color, appearing as almost a charcoal gray. It pairs well with woods such as Ebonized, Ebony, and Cardinal and Crimson Rosewoods found in many Staunton chess pieces. It also matches well with many of the theme chess pieces - both painted and not.

This set includes extra queens. Chess Pieces hand-carved in India, Chess Board made in Poland.
