    The Challenger Series Luxury Chess Pieces - 4.4" King - Rosewood

    Product Code: MENWCHL44-IR-B

    Description

    The all-new Challenger is the newest member of the Camaratta Signature Line of chessmen. A robust new playing set designed for the rigors of tournament and rapid play while retaining the grace and elegance you have come to expect from a set of House of Staunton chessmen. Each army has a full Club-size King, 4.4” tall with a 2” diameter base, designed for play on chessboard with 2-3/8” or 2-1/2” squares. The set of 32 chessmen weigh an impressive 77.1 ounces. Specifically designed by Frank Camaratta, the chessmen feature properly balanced weighting and a stately Rook that projects the proper force for a major piece on the chessboard. The Knight is particularly well carved for a set of chessmen in this price range, with a finely balanced design that is aggressive, but not visually overwhelming. The masterful carving of the tightly-cropped mane is very reminiscent of the Greek war-horses gracing the East pediment of the Greek Parthenon. The set comes standard with three king’s finials, the traditional Formeé cross, a properly proportioned Maltese cross and an Eastern ball finial.


    A unique feature of this set of chessmen is that the future owner is free to select each army from several exotic wood offerings. Along with the more conventional choices of Boxwood and Ebony, or Ebonized/Red-stained Boxwood, more artistically grained wood such as Eastern Baywood, Magnolia Wood, Olive Ash, Winged Elm or the shockingly grained Zebrano are offered to create a truly unique set of chessmen!
