This set includes 3 black knights; one has a hairline crack in the base, and one of these hand-carved pieces is slightly different. It is still a detailed, elegant, and beautiful wood set!
This set of Alexander Series Wood Chess Pieces has one of the most unusual knights we have ever seen. He is represented with the full body of a horse raring up to defend his king in battle. He stands on a carved base and is 4 1/4 inches tall with a 1 3/4 inch base.
The King stand a proudly at 4 1/4 inches and his base is a robust 1 3/4 inches. He is obviously a strong leader. And why not! After all, this set bears the name of Alexander the Great, one of the greatest generals in world history. It is appropriate that this king has a well-founded reputation to conquer his enemies as well.
The set comes Ebony but is also available in Bud-Rosewood as item #SR925. Due to the size of this set, you will want to choose a board with a square of 2 to 2 1/4 inches.
