Mark of Westminster Chess Pieces are the perfection in wood Staunton chess piece design. The premier chess pieces by Mark Of Westminster have been known for their heirloom quality. Each chess set is exclusive, with a printed certificate of authenticity that serves as a lifetime warranty for natural defect. Each chess piece is hand-carved, has leather-bottoms, extra queens, and the signature Mark of Westminster Logo beneath the king. This is the modern Vanguard design, with teardrop style pawns and a knight based on a pedestal.
These chess pieces are Ebony Wood and Boxwood, which can suit virtually any board color, however Walnut, Teak, Wengue, and Ebonized chess boards are most popular.
Ebony Wood Chess Pieces are the prize choice of many chess amateurs. The purest ebony has little grain, and is jet black in color. Ebony is an extremely rare and hard wood, and is often seen in heirloom quality chess pieces.
Boxwood Chess Pieces are the near universal standard for ‘white’ chess pieces in hand-carved sets. It is a fairly easy wood to work with, and shows off good detail.
The Executive chess boards by Mark of Westminster are premier, furniture quality, real-wood veneer inlays. This style, available only through the Mark of Westminster line, maximizes the square to border ratio in order to fit a larger square on a smaller table. It also has a sharp black pinstripe, enabling the board to go with nearly any decor. Less than 100 of these chess boards are produced annually and each comes with a certificate of authenticity with serial number.
