The Madrid Luxury Staunton pieces shown here are carved from a select grade of Sheesham and Boxwood. Sheesham is commonly known as Golden Rosewood – and is known for being a nicely grained dark brown hardwood. The two woods used here are less expensive than Red Sandalwood and Ebony, which is why we can offer this distinctive design at an attractive price level.
These luxury chessmen are triple weighted, come with a 4 inch King, and have a perfect felt base. Each piece has been carved, polished and finished to a standard of excellence. These pieces are from the most renowned maker of luxury chess pieces. Combined with a board that is around 23 inches square you have an excellent heirloom set.
