The burnt finish brings a whole new level of intrigue and sophistication to the chessboard by combining a classic set with a striking decorative finish. Each Heirloom chess set combines a true US handcrafted solid walnut and maple hardwood chessboard with a unique set of chess pieces to suit a wide variety of tastes.
The full-size tournament style Grandmaster chessmen with 4" King are hand carved by master artisans from high grade woods. The pieces are heavily weighted for a superb chess playing experience and beautifully finished complete with a luxurious billiard felt base. These Grandmaster chessmen truly combine finesse and function - elegance amid frequent chess matches.
The chessboard is handcrafted in Pennsylvania from locally sourced premium walnut and maple woods. The process of creating the boards takes many months, from the drying and curing of woods, to the special cutting and assembly process, to the final details that include grooves, beveled edge, engraving, and the multiple finishes that gives it the trademark luxurious, smooth surface.
For display or frequent play, this heirloom quality chess set will be enjoyed for years and spare pieces are most likely available for many years should they ever be needed.
