The dark chess pieces are made of ebony wood. It would be difficult to find a more sumptuous wood than ebony wood for the dark side chess pieces. The texture of the ebony wood is fine and a true pleasure to hold. The deep luster and total blackness of the ebony wood are exceptional.
The opposing pieces are made of boxwood which is traditionally used for white side. It is one of the fairly easy woods to work with and shows off aesthetic detail. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. King, Queens, Bishops, and Pawns have unique rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chessmen for smooth movement on the chess board. The lathe work on the each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the unique collar rings and elegant curves.
Double is better than one: The set comes with Double Rook(first in it's class) which is well-crafted and represents the highest grade of carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.
For a fine uniform finish, we've shielded the pieces with buff-polish instead of lacquer finish. This also ensures the surface is hardy and resistant to scratches & dirt.
Wavy mane for a delicate feel: The knights are precision-crafted. We designed and focus tested over 30 variations before finalizing the mane of the knight, it perfectly matches the design. Such crafting process requires prior analysis on the wood material before it is sent for processing.
Design Inspiration: The knight of the set is inspired by the Mustang horse. Mustang horses are known for their Strong and Sturdy legs, great intelligence and some of them have a very great feathering or hair growth. The wavy & flowing mane of the knight represents the Mustang in full gallop.
Craftsmanship: Did you notice? All chess pieces have handmade vertical lines at the bottom of the shank, for an elegant look. The carving and the design of the knight are quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, teeth and, craftsmanship around the wavy mane. The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding that allows the set to truly stand out. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade ebonywood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. Each chessmen is carefully handcrafted in India and takes some influences from the Indian Chetak Series. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $1500+ by other retailers.
Uniformity of pieces: The shapes of turned pieces are guided by metal profiles and so all turned pieces are identical, especially the pawns. You can expect some variation where hand carving or cutting comes i.e. knights.
All chess pieces have an elegant visual appeal that blends well for permanent display on a cocktail table or any contemporary home. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here
