The Supreme is a very traditional Staunton set. It is carved in a style which reminds of Nathaniel Cook's 1849 design, particularly the Knights and Kings. The wood is Boxwood with the dark side stained to resemble Ebony. It is a great display set which is robust enough to be played daily. The pieces are very nicely weighted for stability and balance and also feel great in the hand. Note the fine carving on the Knights with individually carved teeth, always a sign of a fine chess set.
The king stands 3" tall with a king's base diameter of 35mm, we recommend a large board with this set.
Chess men only, boards sold separately.
