executive set combo (walnut board)
The Staunton set first became popular in 1851 when English chess master, Howard Staunton, promoted a similar set at the first international chess tournament.
The Executive design has a rather larger Staunton look and the hand-carved knights have a beautifully carved mane, detailed teeth and swept-back pointed ears. Handcrafted in India by expert craftsmen, this set delivers exceptional detail at an affordable price. The pieces are made from Sheesham wood and fitted with green felt bases. Two additional queens, one in each colour, are included in the set.

The deluxe veneered alternating Walnut and Maple wooden board from Spain, are completed in a matt, satin finish. The thickness of the board is 13mm and the board size is 55cm x 55cm with 55mm squares.
