16" Tournament Premier Chess Set in Ebonized or Honey Rosewood
Everyone Likes Choice. We sometimes take that philosophy to the extreme by offering hundreds of chess boards and chess sets to choose from. Each are unique and there are chess boards that fit virtually any budget, and that can make purchasing difficult.
We make it easier by offering some popular combinations of chess boards and chess pieces that fit with size and style. These sets feature the hand carved, well weighted Mark of Westminster chessmen complete with leather bottoms and extra queens.
The pieces to this chess set are carved with the 3 3/4" Tournament Premier design. This set combines the classic natures of both the french and german design to make a stream-lined set that has an elegant S-type curve. This set is a fantastic display chess set which can also be easily used for play - the pieces are heavy and sturdy and will not chip easily. This is a tournament sized set, meeting the required specifications for tournament play - but perhaps it's better to keep this one at home!
We realize that while some people enjoy a matching chess set, others like a strong contrast between the pieces and the board. For that reason, this chess set is available in either Honey Rosewood or Ebonized woods.
Ebonized chess pieces are laquered black to give the stunning contrast seen with real ebony for a fraction of the cost, and Honey Rosewood chess pieces are a soft, easy to work with light to medium brown wood with great grain variation.
The set includes the fantastic, US made solid-wood chess boards. These boards are hand crafted solid blocks of walnut and maple (with a chestnut tint on the walnut and a pearly tone for the maple). They have a design that straddles both modern and rustic and due to their hand carved construction, no two are ever the same.
