I suppose it’s fairly modest by many standards but it’s lovely to me.

 The Chess pieces are hand carved in Staunton Design in the combination of Golden Rosewood/Boxwood.” It also smells nice.

 

 

It’s not my first board but it’s my first real board – wood, big (12”) etc. I’m looking forward to having some games on it.  Now I can play a proper game where the sound of wooden piece clonking on a board is real - I wonder if I’ll play better or worse.

 

I got it from http://www.houseofchessstore.com/magnetic_travel_chess_set_12.html
