This package includes our Wellington Staunton Chess Set in African Padauk and Boxwood matched with our Padauk and Bird's-eye Maple Molded Chess Board. This eye-catching chess set in colorful African padauk and boxwood creates a stunning presentation on the chess board. Named for the Duke of Wellington whom defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, this is our newest chess set and one of the best in our collection. The Wellington blends contemporary and traditional Staunton design resulting in a truly unique chess set from every angle. The knights are extraordinary with finely carved detail including the mane, eyes, ears, nostrils, and teeth. The other pieces are equally impressive with beautiful profiles and shapes. The lathe work is remarkable with compound collars and eloquent lines perfectly turned into each piece. Even the design of the rook stands out with a unique parapet and crenelations. The pawns are wonderfully large making them easy to handle during the game.The king is 4.4" tall with a 2" wide base and features an ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The pieces are triple-weighted to produce a low-center of gravity and exceptional stability on the chess board. The pieces are padded with thick green baize for a nice cushion when picking up and moving or sliding across the chess board. The pieces are individually hand polished to beautiful luster.African padauk is one of the most colorful of the exotic woods and is often referred to as blood rosewood. We designed our Padauk and Bird's-eye Maple Chess Board specifically for these chess sets and they look spectacular together. The bird's-eye maple is gorgeous and its' rich golden color is perfect for contrasting with either the ebony or padauk. The black inlay border and molded-edge add an elegant touch to the board and enhances the colors of the padauk and bird's-eye maple even more. This heirloom quality chess set made from exotic woods is not only a good investment for these times but it will make every chess game all the more enjoyable and is sure to become one of your treasured possessions that will be handed down for generations.Chess Set: African Padauk & Boxwood Pieces individually hand polished with solid lacquer and buffing wheel King Height: 4.4" King Base: 1.875" King Weight: 4.2 oz.
