Cambridge Springs 1904 chess set

Every manufacturer I know of stains their ebony black and when I asked them why, and I did, they say because the consumer demands it. I feel ebony with a few brown strips left natural looks beautiful. I have one old set that has a few brown strips in the ebony and it looks great, better than all black IMHO.

Ebonized when we talk of is dyed boxwood which will keep the price down on this set and will not crack as easy. We are not talking about ebony that is stained black.

As you said deep black ebony without a trace of brown under light is super rare and since it is on as some say the endangered list there is no need to manufacturer from it.

Let me keep this bumped up so others can see for the most part the set and see if they would like one in a few months.
