Chess Pieces - Economy

Club Special, 3.8" Sheesham

Product Code: 11021

Product Information

For club players, plastic chess pieces are often the norm and luxury is absent from their playing fields. These chess figures make a great compromise between elegance and budget constraints. The design is held in the popular Staunton design, which is the set to be used in chess tournaments.

All white pieces are handcrafted from boxwood while the black ones are made from sheesham. The pieces are polished by hand to a very high standard to give them their shiny looks.

Given the inexpensive price of this set, the knight shows a remarkable array of details, like eyeballs, ears, a half-open mouth and nostrils. Clearly a superior choice over cheap featureless plastic pieces.

The king measures 3.8" in height and has a weight of 55g for black (and 47g for white). With a base diameter of 1.5", a chess board with a field size of 2.0" / 50mm would suit these figures.

These pieces are a great choice if you are heading out to buy your first set of wooden quality chess pieces. It is a rather tall set of chess figures and its value for money aspect is outstanding. Since all pieces are made from solid wood, this set will last for many years and tournaments to come.

Also available in ebonised colour.
