French, 2.75" Ebonised

The French Series chess pieces are a great example that quality can be affordable. These chessmen are handcrafted from boxwood and polished by hand to give them a shiny finish. The black pieces are from boxwood also, but are ebonised - a process which gives the wood a black, lustre finish, similar to real ebony wood, yet without the price tag.

The knight certainly gets the attention as it shows some fine details given the price of this inexpensive, yet stunning chess set.

The king measures 2.75" (around 7cm) in height and weighs 28g with a base diameter of slightly more than 1 1/8" (3cm). All pieces come with a green felt at the bottom to protect your board from scratches and also allows an easy sliding of the pieces across the board.

The recommended chess board is one with 1.5" squares.

This is a very fine example of a quality chess set which will give you many years of joy at an affordable price.
