3.5" French Knight Pieces Ebonised are made in the popular and well-liked French Staunton chess style. The quality of finish and attention to detail on these solid wooden chessmen is far beyond what you expect from such a modestly priced set. Each chess piece has been expertly turned from solid boxwood. The black pieces have been 'ebonised' - a very convincing process that gives them the look of real ebony. Each piece is weighted and felted on the base. They are available in ebonised (black) or sheesham (brown) version. All pieces are carefully polished and weighted. The pieces are available also in various sizes. Every single piece, from the king to the pawn, is finished in natural wood with extensive hand polishing that produces the best possible end product.
King size: 3.5" / 9 cm
