Hadrian Staunton Chess Set in Ebony & Boxwood - 4.4" King
This elegant chess set is named after Hadrian, the famous Roman Emperor and military administrator that ruled from 117 to 138. Hadrian is known for having re-built the Pantheon and building the Temple of Venus and Roma. But his most famous work was Hadrian's Wall which stretch for over 73 miles across Britain and marked the northern limit of Roman Britain.

The knight has a bridle and reigns and finely carved features including ears, eyes, mane, and mouth. The king is 4.4" tall and features an ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and eloquent lines turned into the base. Even the rook stands out as an extraordinary piece with its' unique parapet and crenelations. The pawns are extra-large making them easy to handle during the game.

Pieces are heavily weighted and have green baize pads for a soft and cushioned feel on the chess board. The ebony is jet black and polished to a beautiful luster as is the light amber color boxwood.

Our Black and Ash Burl High Gloss Deluxe Chess Board is one of our favorite choices for ebony and boxwood pieces - the colors are a perfect match. The board is finished in glass-like high gloss polyurethane that creates a beautiful reflection and makes for a striking show piece. The board and pieces together are nothing less than a true piece of art. Whether you are a collector or looking for your one special chess set, you will be thoroughly pleased with the Hadrian!
