With a sophisticated and refined design, this is not only a chess set, it also works as a piece of interior décor. Handcrafted from the finest olive burl, the wooden board maintains its natural grain and two-tone colour. Using fine marquetry skills, the playing surface features wooden inlays, creating a beautifully artistic aesthetic.


The shape of the traditional wooden chess pieces (coloured brown and ivory) is referred to as ‘Staunton’, after the mid-nineteenth century chess master Howard Staunton, who designed them. Supplied in a sleek storage box, this is a luxurious way to enjoy a classic game.
