Our Teak Chess Set with a 48" King is our most stunning Chess Set. This 48" chess set, made of solid teak, is quite dramatic in its presentation, whether located in expansive yard, house terrace, foyer, even large room with this as its central attraction.
This is the largest and most elegant of our teak chess sets that is still light enough to be played without dollies. When planning to lift the pieces, particularly for children and the elderly, look to the weight of the queen (55 pounds). Although the king is heavier, his one-square move is done with a simple roll along the edge of the base. The queen has a standard collar 23" from the floor that is convenient for lifting. Lifting a bucket with its handle is a similar move, so test lift and walk with a bucket containing 55 pounds.
These Large Teak Chess Pieces are simply stunning. Every piece has been carefully hand crafted to make this beautiful chess set. This 48" set is popular due to its classic design and exceptional beauty.
This set is very similar to our smaller chess sets with a Staunton design. MegaChess Teak Chess Sets are superior to any made in the world for the following reasons;
32 Beautifully hand carved chess pieces with the light side retaining it full natural color with a light, sun protecting stain and the dark color being stained to allow you to see the natural grains in this elegant wood.
This is the 2nd largest of our seven teak chess sets. These pieces are suitable for play indoors or outdoors. The 48" King is more than eleven times the size of a traditional chess set!
When planning a playing area, consider the minimum size of the square of a chessboard as the diameter of the base of the king (17"). That minimum would be a chessboard 11 feet and 4 inches on each side. Optimum would be 24" squares, which is also a standard for tile sizes, yielding a chessboard 16 feet on each side.
To transport the entire MT48 chess set, plan on about 70 cubic feet, which fills up the back half of a van.
Our Teak Chess Sets are not only beautiful, but they are strong and very durable! In fact teak is one of the toughest woods on the planet! It is particularly resistant to the elements, decay and insects due to it density and internal resins.
Our Teak Chess Sets are featured around the globe in some of the most exquisite resorts, country clubs, corporate settings, and backyards.
