German Staunton Golden Roosewood and Boxwood Chess Pieces
|I am very impressed with these German Staunton pieces, ones which remind me of the very pieces used in so many international tournaments. Simple in design,functional and attractive. I might also note that these pieces do not easily tip over in use. This is my "go to" set for future USCF tournaments, as well as for home analysis. I purchased a Mahagony and Maple ($49.00) board in 1.75" squares and find the contrast to be perfect for me. I tend to dislike really dark squares given the low light...
