Recent, Large Hand Carved Bud Rosewood and Boxwood Chess Pieces, India
Detail: This is a newer complete set – 26 pieces – of hand carved chess pieces. The king is a tall 5.75”, the queen is 4.75” and a pawn is 2.375”. The dark pieces are carved from bud rosewood, considered one of the most beautiful woods for chess (with its soft wood grain and dark burgundy color). The lighter pieces are boxwood. Each piece is weighted for stability and sits on a felt base. I usually do not offer anything brand new but I could not pass up offering such a quality and detailed carved set. This set does not come with a board but if you are interested in a very unique handcrafted copper chess board from Greece, just search for CHESS BOARD GREECE (Item O-1521).
