Another set new to our collection of wood chess pieces is the American Staunton wood chess set. It is not only a striking set, but is a bargain for the price. The king stands 3 3/4 inches tall with a 1 5/8 inch base. The knight has the traditional raised head with his ears laid back, teeth bared and nostrils flared so that he's ready to do battle! The dark side of this set is made from your choice of Ebonized hardwood, Indian Rosewood, or Golden Rosewood. The light pieces are made of Boxwood. The pieces all have felt bottoms. Typical to fine wood, the grain and color may vary slightly from piece to piece. Treat them as you would fine furniture. Avoid leaving them in direct sunlight and store them in a humidity stable area. These pieces are weighted. The smaller pieces contain lighter weights, while larger pieces have heavier weights. The entire set weighs approximately 3 1/4 pounds. We suggest using a board with 2.5" squares. Complete set with 34 pieces including two extra queens for pawn promotion.

The American Staunton wood chess set is a new set in our collection of wood chess pieces.
This chess set comes with a king that stands 3 3/4 inches tall with a 1 5/8 inch base. The only reason for these kings to topple is when your opponent resigns!
The knight has the traditional raised head with his ears laid back, teeth bared, and nostrils flared so that he's ready to do battle!
The light pieces are made of beautiful Boxwood, and you can select your choice of wood for the darker pieces from:
- Ebonized Boxwood
- Indian Rosewood
- Golden Rosewood
Like good furniture, these pieces do best away from direct sunlight and in stable humidity. The solid, wooden box will help keep your pieces in mint condition.
Although these pieces are weighted for greater stability, the entire set only weighs approximately 3 1/4 pounds. We've kept it light enough for travel because a chess set that looks this good should be shown to the world.
The felt bottoms will ensure your chessboard of choice remains unmarked.
