We are pleased to announce the Old Collector's Club Staunton Series heirloom quality chessmen exquisitely made from ebony wood and natural boxwood(Also available in Bud rosewood). The King proudly stands at 4.4 inches and its base is robust 1.9 inches. This is a classic design featuring the magnificently robust and remarkable knight. 

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 the 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 heavily weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. All Pieces are uniquely designed 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 lathe work on each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the elegant curves. There are 6 cuts in the turrets of the rook. 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, each chessmen is carefully handcrafted in India. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade ebony wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. 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 $900+ 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

The pieces are really very good and heavily weighted. When it arrived, i was blown away by its beauty. I am very happy. These pieces are really great!

Important point - When I received the pieces, small portion of 4 pieces were broken which was caused due to FedEx shipment. But Chessbazaar team were very supported about it and all the 4 pieces were replaced and they are really beautiful. Their replacement was very prompt.

I don't know any other chess store which provide better service then Chessbazaar. It is just awesome.
