The Chevalier chess set is one of our flagship series and is available in three stunning combinations of boxwood, ebony, and padauk – which includes the highly valuable padauk-ebony combination. Each set features 34 luxurious, heavily weighted, and non-lacquered chessmen with a natural finish. These exquisite chessmen follow the tradition of 19th-century Staunton chessmen, but with a uniquely intricate and skillfully carved Knight that is both detailed and elegant.
The pieces are club-sized, with the height of the king measuring 4.4 inches. Crafted with first-class woods, the Chevalier chessmen showcase the beauty of each wood type used, and their heavy weight provides a satisfying feel during gameplay. One of the most striking features of the set is the rigorously carved finials of the King’s crown. There are four different finials for each color, and each one is a woodcarving masterpiece.
The Chevalier chessmen are handcrafted in India by skilled artisans who carefully select and craft each piece with elaborate craftsmanship. The durability and timeless design of the Chevalier chessmen will make them last for decades to come, and they will be cherished from generation to generation.
To fully appreciate the elegance and craftsmanship of this set, we recommend pairing it with the Toscana board. However, the set is compatible with any 60cm board. Watch the video to see the four different King’s finials of the Chevalier series.
