Bucephalus Staunton Chess Set Ebony Boxwood Pieces with Black Ash Burl Chess Board 45 King

This stunning chess set includes our Bucephalus Staunton in ebony and boxwood matched with the Black and Ash Burl Deluxe chess board. This set is named after the famous war horse Bucephalus, that Alexander the Great rode throughout his many military conquests in the middle east. Bucephalus is a Greek name meaning ox head, conjuring the image of a strong, broad and thick head. The knight was designed with this in mind creating a large but intricately detailed knight. Only the very best craftsmen can carve knights with this level of detail including eyes, nostrils, mouth, and teeth. What really stands out on this knight is the large and elegant mane flowing down the horses neck. All of the pieces are beautifully shaped with an elegant profile that forms a cohesive design from king to pawn. The lathe work is extraordinary with compound collars and eloquent lines precisely turned into the base of each piece. This is a large set with a king that is 4.25 tall with a 1.875 base. Pieces are heavily weighted and have thick green baize pads.Our Black and Ash Burl Deluxe chess board is a favorite for ebony and boxwood chess sets. The black and golden color of the natural ash burl wood creates a rich looking backdrop with its high gloss glass like finish. A pinstripe around the playing area along with an extra wide frame adds elegance to an already spectacular chess board. This is an inlaid chess board made for us by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain and the quality of the craftsmanship is unsurpassed. The squares are 2.375 with the chess board measuring 23.5 overall and .625 thick. Whether you are a collector or looking for your one special chess set, you will be thoroughly pleased with the Bucephalus!Chess Set Features Genuine Ebony Boxwood Pieces individually hand polished with solid lacquer and buffing wheel King Height 4.5 King Base 1.875 King Weight 4.2 oz.
