Carved Chamfered Base in Black Chess Set (X2002)
A triple weighted felted chess set. The detailed knight shows intense detail of the mouth, head and teeth. The facial muscles have good definition with a chiselled look that catches the light nicely. The wood utilized is Chidar - or Boxwood, it is stained to give an Ebony appearance. The triple weight of the set marks it as luxury - a feature of higher end chess sets - these weigh in at a very strong 115g and have a reassuring feel in the hand. The overall design has good balance. The bottom of the pieces have leather for padding. The board for this set should have 2 inch squares.
