SKU-HC550 Heirloom Scout Chess Set from Chess House  sku

Heirloom Scout Chess Set - HC550 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. While this set is perfect for any age player and skill level, it's the ideal first wooden chess set. The sleek chess pieces blend championship specifications with a minimalist style. In particular the knight is fashionable, yet simple. The pieces are carved by master artisans from quality boxwood and nicely weighted for a fantastic chess playing experience. They are finished with a protective clear stain. Felt bases protect a chessboard and enhance the smooth playing quality. 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 3/4" Base 32 Pieces + 2 Extra queens for that occasional pawn promotion Green felt bases Ebonized Boxwood is created when Boxwood is specially stained to the black appearance similar to the desirable Ebony wood. This is ideal for those who like the black contrast at a reasonable price. The light pieces are finished in clear-stain Boxwood as with most sets of chess pieces. 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
