3" Weighted Ebonized French Standard Staunton Chess Set
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 and weighted with felt bottoms, extra queens, and the signature Mark of Westminster Logo beneath the king. The French design is our most popular, with a classic, very playable look and feel.
We have combined this classic set of chess pieces with our standard rounded corner chess boards. Each features a stylish mosaic and ample border size making them an attractive board without being distracting.
These weighted chess pieces are Ebonized and Boxwood. Ebonized Chess Pieces are actually Boxwood pieces lacquered black, giving them a pure black appearance almost identical to ebony, but for a fraction of the cost. Boxwood Chess Pieces are the near universal standard for 'white' chess pieces in hand-carved sets. It is a fairly easy wood to work with, and shows off good detail.
