A totally elegant gift for chess aficionados. The Black and Natural Wood French Knight Chess Set in Inlaid Black and Maple Chest is a high quality decorative piece as well as a functional board for play. Mounted in a chest-style base made from maple wood, the chess board has 1.5-inch squares in alternating inlaid black and natural maple colors. Small brass knobs mounted on the board let you lift it easily out of the base, revealing divided storage underneath that safely organizes the chessmen. The pieces themselves are made from boxwood with weighted and felted bottoms; the two opposing sides are finished in stained black and natural wood. The board measures 12L x 12W x 2H inches, and the Kings stand 3 inches tall.
