4 1/2" Mark of Westminster Ebony Hades 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 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.
These chess pieces are Ebonywood and Boxwood, which can suit virtually any board color, however Walnut, Teak, Wengue, and Ebonized chess boards are most popular.
The Hades Design is one of the most detailed, with a sweeping mane comprised with incredible etched detailing. Additionally, unlike many other Staunton chessmen, the other pieces are also uniquely stylized to allow the set to truly stand out.
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.
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.
Chessboard Not Included. Deluxe humidor style storage box optional.
