Offered here is a set of The Emperor’s Stallion Tournament Chessmen in Boxwood and Blood Rosewood. The King stands 4-1/2″ tall with a 1-7/8″ diameter base. The pieces are housed in a House of Staunton Black slide-top lined and divided box. The chessmen are heavily weighted and rest atop green felt base pads.  The most notable feature of this set of chessmen is the Knight, with its flowing mane and aggressive facial expression. This set of chessmen includes an extra pair of Queens to assist during Pawn Promotion, a feature pioneered by Frank Camaratta in 1995. The set is as new and unused. The chessmen play and display best on a chessboard with 2-1/2″ squares. The chessboard shown is not included, but suitable chessboards and clocks can be found elsewhere on this site.
