Combination Sets

Each of the chess sets has the usual light and dark squares, many of them with additional carvings and embellishments around the edges, as well as alphanumeric notation for the squares to aid tracking of your moves. The contrasting squares can be a variety of colours depending on the wood used and the design of the chess pieces. For instance, many of the boards are intarsia, which is like marquetry. And of course in this case the colour of the squares is dictated by the natural colour of the woods that are used. In other cases, such as the blue, burgundy and green sets, the coloured squares are produced by staining, with the contrasting squares being a cream or white colour.
