Sheffield Staunton Chess Set in Ebony & Boxwood - 4.4" King

Sheffield Staunton Chess Set in Ebony & Boxwood - 4.4" King
Designed and manufactured by our partner Amritsar Ivory works, the Sheffield is one of the finest chess sets ever made. This is a club size chess set with a 4.4" tall king and with a unique and elegant knight that distinguishes this set from all others. The fine detail carved into the knight is exquisite with special attention paid to the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. The replication of the carvers work from knight to knight is remarkable. The ebony is pure black and polished to a smooth, glossy shine. The boxwood is beautifully grained and with the ideal medium amber color.

The king, queen, and bishops have columns with proportionate width and a graceful curve. The king has 4 different finials that can be interchanged according to your personal taste. The queen's crown is turned to the ideal thickness and has 12 sharp points that are perfectly spaced. The bishop miter is large with a wide slot that is rounded from one side to the other. The rooks are tall standing even with the top of the knight's head and have an attractive shallow parapet with perfectly cut crenels. The pawns are large and heavy with wide, thin collars.

You may want to consider adding our Deluxe Chess Coffer. This two-tray coffer is extra large and designed specifically for our club size chess sets like the Sheffield. Inside you will find individual compartments to hold each piece and the entire coffer is lined with a beautiful thick green baize to protect the pieces when they are being stored. When you open the lid you will find a beautifully polished gold, laser engraved plaque with our Staunton by Design logo.
