Product Details
The design of the Players Series Chess set has been inspired by the Jaques of London design from the late 1890s, a period widely regarded by Chess collectors as having the finest Staunton Chess Sets ever produced. Made of beautiful boxwood and hand carved by master artisans, these pieces are black and natural lacquered and heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a rich finish. The Players Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in a quality Chess set at a very affordable price.

The Player Series Chessmen, a full tournament-sized set, exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining elegance.

Chess pieces:
  • To create Black and Natural Lacquered Chessmen, Boxwood pieces are painted with black lacquer or clear-coat Lacquer and then hand-rubbed with fine pumice stone. The result is a hard, durable water-resistant finish which has a very high gloss.
  • The Standard Traditional Blackwood / Bird's Eye Maple wooden Gloss Chessboard with 2.25" Squares features Blackwood (dark) and Bird's Eye Maple (light) squares with a Blackwood frame. This Chessboard is 23" x 23" x 0.5" thick and has a satin finish. It has felt pads at each corner to slightly elevate board from surface and protect from scratches.
  • The Mahogany Standard Chess Box is lined in green velour, divided and features brass quadrant hinges and a brass locking clasp.
