The French series chessmen are the definition of elegant form and function and a well recognized Staunton design. Designed to withstand rigorous play, the quality, and craftsmanship are superior to many chessmen in the price range. This means you'll have a set that will delight the chess player game after game.
The sturdy pieces are heavily weighted for that amazing feel and have no delicate points to break or chip. Felted for smooth play and protection of a wooden chessboard surface, the boxwood and golden rosewood pieces are made by some of the world's best India craftsmen and are polished and stained for the wonderful look and feel you will enjoy for a long, long time.
If a piece is every lost, broken, or disabled by a house pet, Chess House can easily help you receive a replacement part even years later.
