These unique and handsomely designed chess pieces are made of Hornbeam wood that is found in the forests of Europe. Hornbeam (sometimes known as Ironwood) is mostly white and used for intricate and decorative carvings. Sycamore offers a dark brown, smooth textured wood, perfect for the dark pieces. These woods coupled with the craftsmanship of the Carpathian artisans make for some of the finest chess sets available in the marketplace today. The chess pieces have been carefully crafted, lightly weighted and equipped with felt pads on the bottom.
Dark squares are carefully prepared to a beautiful brown color. Lighter squares are left as pale natural wood and are lacquered with perfect finish. Board lines, numbers and letters are near black. The dark playing pieces are stained in the same color as the dark squares on the board. The chess board has a high gloss lacquered finish. Inside the box there is a molded insert of green felt. The box closes with one latch.
