18" Vanguard 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 4" Honey Rosewood Vanguard Staunton design. This design is easily recognized by the modern style - sleek lines for almost all of the pieces save the knight, which is an incredibly carved horse bust atop a pedestal base. While very nicely carved, the pieces are playable - There are few weak points of the chess set for chips or damage to occur, making it a great set for both presentation and display.
Honey Rosewood Chess Pieces are a soft, easy to work with light to medium brown wood. There is a fair amount of grain, and is an excellent choice if you want an inexpensive natural look. The boxwood chessmen are the near universal standard for 'white' chess pieces in hand-carved sets.
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.
