This chess set package includes our British Staunton Chess Set in ebony and boxwood matched with our Mission Craft African Padauk and Maple Solid Wood Chess Board. The polished black ebony pieces create a beautiful contrast with the red colors of the African padauk – they look stunning together! Our British Staunton chess set originates from the old British Chess Company design from years past. This set has a sleek profile with a traditional straight base, a small and stylish knight, and unusually tall rook and pawn. The ebony is pure black and polished to a smooth, lustrous finish. The boxwood is beautifully grained and with the ideal medium amber color. The king, queen, and bishop columns have a graceful curve creating a beautiful profile. The king has a traditional formee cross. The queen’s crown has 9 sharp points that are perfectly spaced and left thick enough to prevent breaking. The bishop miter is tall, slender, and symetrical in shape. The rook stands even with the top of the knight’s head and has a straight taper from the parapet to the base. The parapets are tall and have 6 deep crenels. The pawns are tall with large heads that make them easy to grab when playing. Our African Padauk and Maple Mission Craft Solid Wood Chess Board is simplistically beautiful and profoundly designed. It’s nothing less than a fine piece of handcrafted furniture and is the perfect surface for both playing and displaying your treasured chess set. Made from solid African padauk and maple, this chess board is made in America. This heirloom quality chess set made from exotic woods is not only a good investment for these times but it will make every chess game all the more enjoyable and is sure to become one of your treasured possessions that will be handed down for generations.
