Bucephalus Staunton Chess Set in Padauk Boxwood with Molded Edge Padauk Chess Board

This stunning chess set includes our Bucephalus Staunton in padauk and boxwood matched with our Padauk and Bird's Eye Maple Molded Edge 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 4.5 tall with a 1.875 base. Pieces are heavily weighted and have thick green baize pads.Our Padauk and Bird's Eye Maple Molded Edge chess board is one of the most beautiful chess boards in our collection. The padauk is on the most beautiful woods in the world with orange burgundy colors and with this we contrast the bird's eye maple for the white squares. This board makes the perfect backdrop for the padauk and boxwood chess pieces. This is an inlaid chess board handcrafted by the skilled craftsmen of Rechapados Ferrer the quality of the workmanship is unsurpassed. The squares are 2.375 and the overall size of the board is 23.5 and .75 thick.
