This marvelous Indian-American Luxury series chess set is made up of ebony wood and boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.4 inches and its base is robust 1.8 inches. This is a classic design featuring the magnificent and unique knight. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. 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 triple weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. Chess pieces have unique collar rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chessmen for smooth movement on the chess board. The knights are well-crafted and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.

Craftsmanship: The carving of the knight is quite spectacular, look closely at the details around the mane and nostrils. The design of the other pieces is also highly commended to allow the set to truly stand out. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade ebony wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine. Each chessmen is carefully hand crafted in India with dainty details and the design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces is comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $1000+ 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. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here

Stunning Set and Incredible Craftsmanship Review by Robert Gamble
The Indian-American is one of my all time favorite designs and the set itself is absolutely stunning. Aside from a black Rook whose top is not perfectly buffed, the set I received was flawless. I'm not a big fan of rounded Rook crenellations but it is executed well and works with the rest of the set. The pieces have a nice heft (my set weighs in at 2044 grams which is on the higher end of the advertised 1900 +/- 10% range) and are a joy to play with. All of the pieces are incredibly well crafted with no discernible imperfections. The Knights are particularly impressive, probably the best of any set I've seen, and very consistently carved.

The set is so nice that I purchased the "Bud Rosewood" & Boxwood version as well which I am equally happy with. I've seen nearly identical designs from other vendors at 3-4 times the price I paid for this one and the design and workmanship on the Chessbazaar set is, in my opinion, superior.

As is typical for Chessbazaar, the set arrived at lightning speed (3 or 4 days from India to the US) and was very well packaged with individual pieces carefully wrapped. (Posted on 9/3/2018)
Outstanding Review by Chessario
As a collector, I have several sets and this particular set ranks amongst the best I have seen, simply world class.
I thoroughly recommend using the live chat service to iron out any queries prior to purchase.
Thank you to Sapna and all the staff who were a pleasure to deal with. (Posted on 4/7/2016)
