DESCRIPTION

The set includes the perfectly matched Walnut chessboard that was crafted in Manopoulos workshop in Greece by skillful artisans using the Art of Marquetry. The chessmen are weighted and feature a 8.9 cm King's height. Carefully selected wood veneers, traditional designs and special craftsmanship using the art of Marquetry give life to our Wooden Chess collection. The Staunton chess pieces, the ones we know and love, the ones we simply think of as chess pieces. These classic chess pices are named after Howard Staunton who was widely considered to be one of the best players in the world.
