M6009 American Staunton in Sheesham and Boxwood
While this set is a nice one in itself, it has nothing new to offer for those looking for novelty in chess sets of pieces. The sheesham and boxwood pieces are carved in ordinary fashion. The only good thing about this set is the harmony of colors between the two sides. The rich cream color of white pieces is in perfect blend with the dark brown color of the black side. Each piece has a felt-lined base, giving an impression as if they are floating on the board. The king stands at 3.75 inches making it a commanding piece on the board. Aside from this mundane features, the American Staunton in Sheesham and Boxwood is just one of the chess sets you will encounter everyday.
