Product Information

These beautifully crafted chessmen from real ebony are named after a centurion - a professional army officer in Roman times. Commanders they were and now this is your chance to command your artfully crafted army into a victorious (chess)battle. The knight obviously steals the show with its teeth crafted in fine detail and its wide-open nostrils. It certainly gives the impression it is ready for battle. And with the beauty of real ebony wood, you probably won't argue anymore who plays white but who will play black!

Now for the technical details, the king stands at a good-sized 4" and weighs an impressive 92g for black and still a good 81g for white. It has a base diameter of 1.875" and a board with 20 inch side length would fit this set. Of course, they all come felted to protect your board from unsightly scratches. Lastly, for a chess set with such luxurious touch it is natural that it comes with double queens too!

And even if you don't play chess at all, these noble set of chessmen will attract attention in your living room and for those who do like to play a round of chess, the heavy ebony pieces are a true delight to handle. Thanks to the quality craftsmanship found in those pieces, this set makes also a good investment for many generations to come.
