This is a beautiful chess set that mounts to the wall – much like a piece of wall art. It allows for prolonged play with your opponent and comes with a last move marker so you can keep track.
The 34″ H x 22″ W chessboard mounts like a framed picture with its included hardware. The board is made from cherry veneer, alternately stained and left in its natural color to produce the 3 1/4″ H x 2″ W black and white spaces. Eight transparent acrylic shelves support its set of classic Staunton chess pieces. The black pieces are made from rosewood, known for its darkly veined grain and stout heft; the white pieces are made from boxwood, selected for its fine grain and high density–all are turned by hand and finished with a durable, high-gloss cover coat.
