A beautiful yet affordable wooden chess board with black and white squares. The white is more cream than pure white which softens the contrast a little. Each square is 35mm by 35mm. The black is screenprinted onto the board and there is no colour on the reverse side. Varnished to protect from stains. Suitable for everyday use and matches best with our antique finished chess pieces. It weighs a little over 1kg so it is easy to carry but sturdy enough to resist damage. If using metal chess pieces it is recommended to apply the felt bases to the bottom of the pieces to protect the board from scratches during play.
