Ebony Chess Sets

Ebony has been the wood of choice for producing fine Staunton chess sets for over 150 years - all the way back to the famous turners in England in the 18th century. Ebony is one of the hardest and most dense woods in the world - it even sinks in water. There is almost no visible grain and when finely polished it nearly turns into a piece of pure black glassy obsidian. We offer our finest Staunton chess sets in ebony matched with either boxwood or African padauk for the ultimate combination of exotic woods. All of our ebony chess sets are triple weighted and with the extra weight of the heavy ebony, results in the heaviest chess sets. You will find just about any size you are looking for, from 3" up to 5" kings. All of these sets come with green baize pads and include an extra set of queens for pawn promotion.
