SKU-HC540 Heirloom Club Chess Set from Chess House  sku

Heirloom Club Chess Set - HC540 by ChessHouse.com

Item description: This Chess Board Games product is by ChessHouse.com - 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 "Club series" chessmen are the most well known Staunton design used in clubs throughout the country. This set has been designed to withstand rigorous practical play while maintaining elegance. The design, quality, and craftsmanship are superior to most chessmen in its price range. The sturdy club style design is heavily weighted and has no delicate points to break or chip. The pieces are felted for smooth play and to protect the wooden chessboard. 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. CHESS PIECES 3 3/4" King 1 1/2" Base King weight: Pawn size: Entire set weight: 32 Pieces + 2 Extra queens for that occasional pawn promotion Green felt bases Made in IndiaCHESS BOARD Board size: 21" Square size: 2" Board thickness: 3/4" Handcrafted in USA Care Instructions: Avoid prolonged direct exposure to sunlight which can affect the color of finished woods. The chess board can be cleaned with a soft, non-abrasive cloth to remove dust. Due to the living nature of woods, with change in humidity the chessboard may warp ever so slightly for a time. This can be reversed by storing the board vertically for a time with equal exposure of air to both the surface and underside of the board.... Learn More
