Questions & Answers

  • It may just be the studio lighting, but the boxwood pieces in these images appear to be very white looking. Are these natural boxwood pieces, or have they been whitened with some sort of spray finish ? I have two other sets from OS that were not antiqued, that have taken on a beautiful honey-colored patina over time. Would it be reasonable to expect that these will do the same, or have they been treated to make them look this way ?

    The boxwood is not treated and is a natural boxwood. Patina will develop as expected over time 

  • Is this set "1851 Staunton Ebony & Boxwood Chess Pieces" also in a smaller size (4") available?

    The 1851 is only available with 4.4 King
