Besides being extremely beneficial for the health when eaten, walnut – and especially its root ball – provides a very valuable material for luxury chess boards. This board called Roma is one of the gems of the Design Chess catalogue and is available in limited quantities only.
With their decades of experience, the Florentine artisans have succeeded in making the astonishingly swirling texture patterns look breathtakingly beautiful. The pattern of the wood is unique to each board. The deep brown colour tones resonate very elegantly with both light and dark pieces.
Within the current Design Chess selection, the compatible sets with this beautiful board are the Earl, Vulcan, New York and Viking. If you already own the pieces, this board can be recommended for you, provided your set features a king with a base diameter of approximately 1.4 – 1.7 inches (3.6 – 4.3 cm).
