Grande Staunton Chess Set in Ebony & Boxwood with Mission Craft Padauk Chess Board – 4″ King


This chess set package includes our Grande 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! The Grande is truly a grand chess set with a handsome Staunton design and massive pieces that are heavily weighted. The columns of the king, queen, and bishop are unusually thick while still keeping an elegant profile. The knights are the star of this chess set with a traditional Jaques-like style and finely carved detail including intricately carved eyes, ears, nostrils, teeth, and mane. The king is 4″ tall with a 1.875″ wide base and features a traditional formee cross. The pieces are triple-weighted to produce a low-center of gravity and exceptional stability on the chess board. The pieces are padded with thick green baize for a nice cushion when picking up and moving or sliding across the chess board. The pieces are individually hand polished to beautiful luster. 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.
