Manufacturer: The Chess Store
Mfg ID: FSR275
Our French Lardy Staunton is based on the original chess set made by the Lardy Chess Company in France from many years ago. There's nothing fancy about this chess set but it has a masculine handsomeness and a traditional Staunton look that serious chess players prefer for their everyday chess set. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel when moving and are properly weighted for stability on the chess board. The rosewood and boxwood are hand polished to a beautiful sheen. The French Lardy is truly a classic and an exceptional chess set for the casual game at home or tournament play.

French Lardy Staunton Chess Set in Rosewood & Boxwood - 2.75
|This is a really beautiful set for a smaller board. Mine matches as near to perfect as possible with the Mahogany & Burl Wood High Gloss Chess Board. On my set thereâs a greater difference in the light and dark grain than showed up in the picture on my monitor which to me is even better.
