3" Honey Rosewood French Staunton Chess Set with 15" Walnut Storage 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 felt bottoms and extra queens. This executive size chess set is a great accent, fitting appropriately on a side or coffee table to not overwhelm the room while still looking very nice.
The pieces to this chess set are the 3" Honey Rosewood French Staunton design. The classic french design is a very popular style known for its slick edging and similarity in design to the popular plastic chessmen seen in tournaments. While very nicely carved, the pieces are extremely durable and playable - so you do not need to be afraid to play with this set daily.
Honey Rosewood Chess Pieces are a light, honey brown color with a variable grain while Boxwood is the near universal standard for 'white' chess pieces in hand-carved sets.
The set includes the popular walnut and maple storage chess board with drawers. The two felt-lined pull out drawers fit the pieces well, and the handsome, rich woods make it an elegant piece for any display.
