Product Details

A delightful chess set for any home, this beautiful Studio Anne Carlton features stunning historical figures on a high quality palisander and maple chess board.

 

THE PIECES

Trafalgar was one of the most decisive naval battles ever fought. In the course of a short October afternoon, the Combined Fleet of France and Spain, with 33 battleships, was defeated by a British force of 27 battleships off cape Trafalgar on the southwest coast of Spain. As a result of this crushing defeat, Napoleon abandoned his hopes of invading England. The Battle of Trafalgar chess pieces has recreated the atmosphere of this great battle.

These chessmen are made out of Polyresin, which is a crushed stone composite. It has the look and feel of stone, but the durability of a plastic. It is truly the best of both worlds.

THE BOARD

Stylish Santos Palisander and Maple veneered board features an inlay border and a matte finish that is pleasing to the eye and touch. The striped and highly visible grain of the Palisander wood is of the Dalbergia genus, the same family as Rosewood and for this reason is an especially nice pair with many rosewood sets.

The playing surface and other surfaces are finished with high quality veneers and a special finish to enhance and protect the wood, giving the chess board a smooth matte finish and preventing glare. The board is manufactured in Spain with the same techniques used for high-end furniture.

Specifications:

  • Board dimensions 21 5/8" x 21 5/8" x 1/2" (21.63")
  • Square size: 2 1/8" (2.13")
