Our Premier Set of plastic chess pieces with a 4?à¢" tall inch king, is perfect for those discriminating chess players who want an upscale set, without an exorbitant price. You won't find a set of such value for double the cost of this one.
The Premier pieces have a beautiful finish. The white pieces area striking Ivory/Natural color, a shade darker than light ivory but not as dark as the caramel-color of some natural pieces. The set weighs in at a hefty 3.75 pounds. The king weighs a full 65 grams (2.2 ounces.)
As you would expect with a set of such quality, there is an extra queen of both colors. The king base is 1?à? inches so a board with 2¼ inch or larger squares is preferable.
