18" Praetorian Chess Set with Solid Walnut Chess Board
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 the popular Praetorian design. This is one of the most elaborate and exclusive on offer, featuring knights with reins and a very detailed S-type mane. This set is a fantastic display chess set which can also be used for play - although the fragile nature of some of the detailing (such as the tips of the ears) require a little more care than less detailed chessmen.
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.
