A full tournament-sized chess set, this set features a 3.75" King with a 1.5" 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 Club Series Chess Pieces exemplify 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 chess pieces in its price range. Nothing even comes close! The chess pieces are new and each set consists of 34 pieces (the full set plus extra queens).
The Wooden Tournament Mahogany / Maple Chessboard with 2.0" Squares features Mahogany (dark) and Maple (light) squares with a Mahogany frame. This veneered chess board is 0.5" thick and has a satin finish.
The Slide Top Box is lined in green velour, divided and is ideal for a full tournament-sized set of chess pieces.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my partner. Three months (and many chess games) later, he's still remarking on how nice the pieces & board feel when we play. This is an excellent wood chess set--I'm really impressed with the value for the price. (Wholesale Chess's customer service was great too.)
Exactly as advertised. Great quality basic board. I was worried about the pieces not being heavy enough but after holding them I was very pleased on how they were weighted. I would definitely buy from this company again
Perfect set for a game at home with a family member or friend, for analysis and study, and to take to the chess club or a tournament in your favorite travel bag. These are heirloom quality pieces you will own and pass on with reasonable care.
The House of Staunton Club Series Wood Chess Set with Pieces, Board, & Box is simply, in a word, BEAUTIFUL. This is a work of art.
The chess board, the pieces, and the chess box were packaged very neatly, and everything came intact. The shipping took only 4 days (2 days were Sat & Sun).
This is the best chess set that I have. I would highly recommend this chess set to anyone looking for a good chess set.
Many thanks to Heather for helping me.
