This package includes our Grande Staunton Chess Set in African Padauk and Boxwood matched with our Padauk and Maple Signature Chess Board. The Grande is one of our finest Staunton chess sets bringing together stout and robust pieces with an elegant Jaques-flavor design. The knight is truly special with eloquent and intricate features including the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and mane that are precisely carved into each piece. African Padauk stands out as one of the most colorful of the exotic woods with its rich orange and burgundy colors.
The king is 3" tall with an extra wide base that measures 1.5" making room for lots of weight. This is one of our heaviest sets and there are few if any sets that have pieces with such amazingly good stability on the chess board. The bottoms of the pieces are padded with thick green baize for a nice cushion and easy sliding on the chess board. Pieces are individually hand polished to a beautiful luster. The chess board is nothing less than a fine piece of handcrafted furniture. Constructed from solid wood, it has 3 tiers rising up to the playing surface and elegantly molded edges.
Whether you are a collector or a student of the game, you will not find a better heirloom quality chess set to display in your home or office!
