Last month the spotlights were primarily on the Reproduced Drueke Vintage Edition chess pieces exquisitely made from ebony wood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.05 inches and its base is robust 1.73 inches. This is a captivated design featuring the magnificently robust and remarkable knight. The carving and the design of the knight are quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, and details around the mane. The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade ebony wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. Shop Now->
The Antique 19th Century Early Staunton Chess Set in Ebony & Antiqued Boxwood with King Side Stamping also made its debut and gathered a lot of fan attention. The king is 3.38 inches high and its base is a robust 1.6 inches. The chess set comes with 34 pieces including 2 extra queens. This antique chess set was produced in early 19th Century. The set was beautiful in its functionality yet easy to be produced in large scale. The pieces were rugged with heavy stable bases which did not tumble easily. The rooks were turned to look solid castles, the pawns were minimalist but refined, the bishops had simple mitres. The design of the set was somewhat similar to 1849 chess set. There are many variations in the design available now but most of these have been derived from the original Staunton design. Shop Now->
