This beautiful wooden chess set is made in the mountain region of Southern Poland and carved by hand. The hand crafted board doubles up as a box containing the pieces with the design carved into the wood. The dark squares are carefully stained to match the playing pieces and allow the natural beauty of the wood grain to shine through. The dividing lines and number/letter references are near black. The lighter squares are left as pale natural wood and lacquered to provide the perfect finish. The Chessmen are weighted and made from Sycamore wood, with all of the carving done by hand. The dark pieces are stained a beautiful Chestnut colour, similar to the dark squares on the board, the lighter pieces are natural wood. Again, the staining is done in such a way as to show off the grain of the wood. The pieces also have a lacquered finish. All pieces have felted bottoms to protect the board.
