The Presidential chess boards by Mark of Westminster are premier, furniture quality, real-wood veneer inlays. This style, available only through the Mark of Westminster line, is a quarter inch thicker than most other chess boards. Most noticeable, the Presidential Series has black beveled edging that brings added elegance without appearing too busy. It also a unique mosaic with maple, mahogany, and black that is not only stylish, but also brings in color that allows it to match well with virtually any chess set. These boards have felt-pad feet for protection of both the board and your own furniture. Less than 100 of these chess boards are produced each year, and each come with a certificate of authenticity with serial number.

Ebonized Birds Eye Maple is for the individual looking for a pure black board. The dark squares are lacquered black with a matte finish, which has no grain whatsoever. Birds Eye Maple is known to have a number of knots and curls which can sometimes be seen in the light squares of these boards. The maple is a good complement to the boxwood used in chess pieces, so this board complements all types of woods, although particularly well with ebonized or ebony chess pieces.

Made in Spain.

I knew exactly what I wanted: a top quality MATT (not glossy!) chessboard with dark brown, almost black 2” squares and a distinctive style! I just couldn’t find what I was looking for until I happened upon ChessUSA’s website. They had the chessboard I wanted! A beautiful chessboard by Mark of Westminster, made in Spain of Ebonized Birds Eye Maple with a MATT finish! I especially really liked the mosaic border the picture showed and this feature is what drew me to select this particular chessboard after looking at others. I eagerly anticipated its arrival and its delivery was exactly on the date they said I would get it. I noted and appreciated that it was securely wrapped, and after getting it out of its bubble and paper wrappings, I inspected it and was highly pleased with the quality of the board. True to the website’s description it was matt! The dark squares were exactly the dark black-brown color I had wanted. I could see subtle wood patterns (unique to Birds Eye Maple) on the light squares – it was BEAUTIFUL! BUT I was disappointed that it DIDN’T have the “unique mosaic with maple, mahogany, and black that is not only stylish, but also brings in color that allows it to match well with virtually any chess set” that was noted in the website’s description of the chessboard; also it hadn’t come with the Certificate of Authenticity which was also mentioned in description. I immediately called the company and expressed my concern and disappointment. I spoke with Quentin who was very courteous and professional, and after emailing him pictures of the border on the chessboard he offered me a couple of very reasonable options, and I chose to go with the 25% discount off the price of the board which amounted to $50.00 and which was promptly processed (same day!). He also promised to follow through on mailing me the Certificate of Authenticity (I haven’t yet received it, but this was just several days ago and we do live on the other side of the States). The first visitor to see it was my daughter who immediately noticed it and commented on its appearance and how “cool” it looked and we immediately played a game of chess! Everyone that has visited our home has commented on its appearance and how classy it looks and some of our guests have even been drawn to sit down and play a game of chess while visiting! Truly, I don’t regret ordering my chessboard from ChessUSA and wouldn’t hesitate to buy from them again! For this reason, I’m giving them 5 stars!
