The Staunton-style French Set is named for the French Knight that accompanies it. His head is proudly held straight out from his body (no shirking a challenge here!) and his mane is well groomed behind his laid back ears. The King and his Queen are classic Staunton.
This set is made from sheesham, rosewood (+$10), or ebonized hardwood for the dark pieces and boxwood for the light pieces. Every piece has a felt bottom to keep your board protected. Each set includes 32 pieces - no extra queens available for these sets. These pieces are weighted. The smaller pieces contain lighter weights, while larger pieces have heavier weights.
