French Lardy and can sometimes be called as a French Knight set of chessmen. This set is crafted from blocks of wood with felt placed on every single piece to prevent any damage to the chess board surface. Each piece has been finished with great attention to detail and weighted to prevent them toppling during an intense game. A French Lardy Staunton set is commonly characterised by the knight, with horizontal lines running across the vertebrae and a closed mouth, almost with a stubborn nature. A staunched rook and engraved bishop give this unique set it’s name. These chess pieces are heavily weighted to prevent the pieces being knocked over easily. Chessgammon has these designs of Staunton chessmen made by the best and most skilled craftsman in Amritsar India.
