Our Bridled Stallion blends the uniqueness of a bridled knight with its oversize Staunton design to create one of the most elegant chess sets in our collection. From the pawn to the king, all six pieces are designed with a wide but elegant profile that creates heavy pieces with more stability on the chess board. The hand carved knights with their bridle and reigns are intricately detailed and with the replication only the most skilled craftsmen in the world can achieve. The king features a unique, one of a kind finial, the queen has a coronet with sharp distinct points, and the oversize rook is nearly as tall as the knight giving this powerful piece the stature it deserves.
The king is 4.5" tall with a base of 1.875". The king weighs an impressive 4.3 ounces and the complete set weighs 5 pounds. Pieces have leather pads. As with most of our chess sets we include spare queens for pawn promotion. Whether a collector or simply looking for a heirloom quality chess set for your game, the Bridled Stallion is sure to please and impress any chess connoisseur.
