This exclusive chess set features Mark of Westminster 3 1/4" Weighted Ebonized and Boxwood New Lardy chessmen with a mahogany and sycamore chess board featuring notation.

French Lardy is a timeless, classic style of chessmen seen throughout europe and the world dating back a century. We have paired this design with a traditional board with notation to highlight a strong contrast - imperative for many in casual and tournament play.  The strong contrast maintains distinction between the black pieces and the mahogany board, so the pieces are never 'lost' - a terrible mistake during a chess match!

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 lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each set is hand-carved, well weighted with felt bottoms, and extra queens. 

The Polish made Mahogany and Sycamore Chess Board is 19" x 19" with 2" Squares.  The board is 1/2" thick and made with real wood veneers.  With notation, this chess set can easily be accompanied by a scorebook to keep track of your games for posterity - or to review your mistakes later.
