Reproduced French Lardy Staunton Chess Pieces : 

The famous France based chess piece manufacturer "Lardy" was situated in Dortan, Oyonnax in the French Jura. In 1950s and 60s Lardy exported large numbers of chess sets to the major markets like USA and England, where they were commercialized by games brands such as Cavalier, Drueke, LoweSterling and others. Thus this prompted the local makers like Drueke or Horn and other manufacturers in the USA and Jaques in England to stop or reduce making quality wooden chess pieces. Lardy was the only company which revolutionized the whole chess set indusrty with their affordable prices & excellent chess set quality. The material which was mostly used by the lardy company is Jura boxwood, but maple and softwoods were also used by the french based giant. There's nothing fancy about this chess set but it has a traditional Staunton look which serious chess players admire for regular play.
This chess set was also used by Vladek Sheybal in 1963 released James Bond movie, From Russian with Love

Customer Reviews
An excellent chess set Review by Cris
I am delighted with this chess set - in both looks and feel it oozes quality and in my view also offers amazing value (even better if you can pick it up in a sale). The pieces are nicely weighted, beautifully carved and I echo other comments in that the pieces appear bigger in reality and really should be paired with a larger board (ideally 55mm).

In terms of this purchase, as ever the ChessBazzar customer service was second to none ; pre-order queries were quickly, efficiently and politely answered (thank you Mayank!); the ordering process was easy. The chess pieces were lovingly and securely packaged and delivery from India was amazingly fast (Posted on 7/15/2018)
Excelente calidad y precio Review by William
El set me resultó muy agradable, principalmente por el precio tan accesible, su calidad y esmero en el acabado de cada pieza es excelente. Tiene muy buen peso. Tiene las medidas de las piezas de torneo. Dado que su acabado no es rebuscado es un ser muy bueno para el blitz. Es un juego que todo amante del ajedrez debe tener, podría decir que es el set adecuado para el fragor de la batalla diaria. Gracias a Chessbazaar por ofrecerlo en ese precio. (Posted on 6/2/2018)
