Green felt on the bases of the pieces protect the chess board and add beauty to the pieces. The design, quality and craftsmanship of these chess pieces is unmatched and that is why it was used by Vladek Sheybal in the famous James Bond movie, From Russia With Love released 1963. The classic design and the hard work of our master craftsmen make it an exceptional chess set which can be used for casual game at home or for tournament play. 

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 industry 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 the 1963 released James Bond movie, From Russian with Love. Chessbazaar presents the reproduction of French lardy chess set where we have made this wonderful chess set available to chess enthusiasts at most affordable prices. We have kept the design of the set as close to the original as possible. Lardy staunton chess sets can easily be distinguished by their typical blocky knights head which we have duly copied in our reproductions. 

This magnificent chess set should be in every serious chess set collector's collection.
