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. For superior protection against scratches and dirt, we've shielded the pieces with buff-polish instead of lacquer finish. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade ebony wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine. 

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 Knights are well-crafted and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.

The lathe work on the each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the unique collar rings and elegant curvesThere are 6 cuts in the turrets of the rook. All chess pieces have a wide base which adds another interesting dimension to the set.
