Item description: This Chess Board Games product is by ChessHouse.com - These exquisite Jacques style chessmen are handpolished, triple weighted with leather base, and crafted from select Ebony and Kari wood. An elegant choice for the refined chess player. Each Heirloom chess set combines a true US handcrafted solid walnut and maple hardwood chessboard with a unique set of chess pieces to suit a wide variety of tastes. The chessboard is handcrafted in Pennsylvania from locally sourced premium walnut and maple woods. The process of creating the boards takes many months, from the drying and curing of woods, to the special cutting and assembly process, to the final details that include grooves, beveled edge, engraving, and the multiple finishes that gives it the trademark luxurious and distinguishably smooth surface. Over many months, Raphael created this chessboard model inspired by Drueke's obsolete works. It has become a remarkable showpiece and platform for any set of chess pieces one owns that are suitably sized, usually 3 3/4" tall on average. For display or frequent play, this heirloom quality chess set will be enjoyed for years and spare pieces are most likely available for many years should they ever be needed.
