Contemporary Staunton Rosewood Triple Weight, Felted Chess Pieces (XX2009)
The lines of this grade one rosewood design is a outstanding feature Henry Moore would have been proud of. Chess sets such as this are works of art and will appreciate over time. The King is well sized at over 4 inches. The Queen has a sister for when your pawn gets promoted (your opponent won't need one of course, but there's one there anyway), but the deadlier of the species also has a secret weapon - the spikes of the coronet. Ouch! Don't mess with her, those spikes are deadly and feel like they have a poison payload along with it. If you like contemporary chess designs, you'll not find a better design anywhere. Single Queens.
