The Parker Staunton Series in Staunton style is made up of burnt boxwood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 3.9 inches and its base is a robust 1.6 inches. Wider base and superb size proportioning from the king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. Along with the classy design, what makes this chess set so unique is how it feels in your hand. To create the dark side of this set, pieces are actually burned followed by the final carving and design work. These techniques create a beautiful contrast between the blackened areas and the natural boxwood color underneath. We then polished them in the high gloss lacquer which gives the chess pieces a smooth shiny surface. The set is entirely handmade in India and weighted for prodigious hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board.
