TRADITIONAL MID SIZED CHESS PIECES

The classic chess piece set is one of our best sellers, this is the preferred style of the club and tournament player. Hand carved and turned using sheesham wood and boxwood, pieces are weighted and felted. Each piece begins with the artisan hand picking the kiln dried timber to begin the art of creating a full set of chess pieces. 

Each piece is carefully inspected before the polishing process. The artisans then add shellac polish and buff up each piece ( 32 pieces!) Finally green felting is added to the base of each piece to protect your chessboard and ease of movement in gameplay
