This elegant chess set package includes our Khan's Stallion Staunton Chess Set in ebony and boxwood matched with a beautiful Macassar Chess Case.

The fine detail is exquisite with special attention paid to the mane, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. Columns on the king, queen, and bishop have a slight curve and the base has a large fillet which is unique to this set. The king has a unique barbee cross and the queen has an urn shaped head.

The sides are covered in a beautiful burgundy color burl wood. The entire case has a high gloss polyurethane finish that gives it a glass-like look.
