The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Kiev Series Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 4" King with a 1.3" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish.
As with all of our Chess sets, the Kiev Series exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!
The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton in 1993.
Beautiful pieces with nice contrast. Darker Rosewood and Boxwood. Hand rubbed finish with low gloss. Paired nicely on mohagony and maple board - 2 and 1/2" squares with logo. Pieces have nice weight and feel. When paired with this board they even meet Bobby Fisher's discriminating requirement that four pawns fit in a single square! Was shipped securely and promptly via FedEx.
