3" Weighted Honey Rosewood Executive 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 chess pieces are Honey Rosewood and Boxwood. These 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. 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.
