Fine solid Rosewood Helena and chess board with wood inlays from Turkish artists. There are many tiny wood working cuts, scores and shapes that are handset. A set with vibrant and attractive colours along with each piece perfectly and intricately fitted to precision by the most highly skilled and experienced craftsmen.
The Atlantic Series or more commonly known as Classic Staunton Chessmen are individually made from single blocks of solid wood, made durable to last for generations of use. This particular Staunton design is very common and popular, including a hat bishop and a staunch rook. The knights have small lined ears and a visible smile of their teeth, each and every piece evidently shows it’s very own character, individually carved from our artisans. Each piece is carefully weighted to prevent them getting knocked over and layered with green felt to smoothly be moved across the chess board surface. These superb chess pieces have been finished with a fine hand polish, a time consuming process that results in a lacquer free natural shine to the beautiful wood that they are carved from.
We also include a wonderfully veneered chess piece storage box, made from Mahogany wood. The storage box is large and compatible enough to store pieces as small as 3 Inch to as large as 4 Inch. The storage box is also padded and coated in black velvet felt to prevent any damage to your chess pieces.
