We are pleased to announce the Empire II Luxury series heirloom quality Staunton chess set exquisitely made from bud rosewood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.6 inches and its base is robust 1.8 inches. This is a luxury design featuring the magnificently robust and remarkable knight. 

Dark chess pieces are exquisitely crafted in bud rosewood. Because of its rarity, bud rosewood chess pieces are the primary choice of many chess enthusiasts. Bud rose wood is an alluring wood and probably the most admired wood for luxury chess sets. 

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. All Pieces are uniquely designed without any collar rings and have 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 and the design of the knight are quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, teeth and, craftsmanship around the mane. The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding, especially the sleek shank and phenomenal finial of the king. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade bud rosewood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. Each chessmen is carefully handcrafted in India and takes some influences from the Empire Series Wooden Chess Pieces. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $800+ 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 or any contemporary home. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here

Package Includes : 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). Chessboard NOT included in this sale.

Simple Sleek and Elegant Review by Stephen

These pieces exude class. They will instantly make your library smell of rich mahogany and leather bound books.

Seriously though they are great pieces, the simple curved lines and soft rounded edges are perfect. They exhibit level of refinement I wouldn't think possible of a chess set, especially on a raised board. I recommend placing them on a 2.5-inch square board, they are too crowded on the 2.25. Everyone that has been in my rec room has commented on the pieces. They really have to be seen in person to appreciate. (Posted on 2/18/2019)

This chess set is really majestic and belongs to a museum. I do not agree with Mandeep that CB chess sets are not standard. I do not know what is meant by the standard by this set is superb. (Posted on 2/10/2019)
