This Teak Chess Set with a 16" King is particularly suited for play outdoors. All ages can play on this set, of course, but children will be especially delighted to play with it in yard, garden, or even play room, and it is still light enough to be transported wherever one might wish to take it.
These Large Teak Chess Pieces are simply stunning. Every piece has been carefully hand crafted to make this beautiful chess set. This 16" set is popular due to its classic design and exceptional beauty.
This set is very similar to our 12" set. The set can also be easily transported to wherever one might wish to play, but may be even more suited to outdoor play - such as in yard, garden, park, or at beach. All that is needed is a balmy day, a flat surface, and a friend with whom to play.

This is the 3rd smallest of our seven teak chess sets and one of three Teak Chess Sets with a 16" King. These pieces are suitable for play indoors or outdoors. The 16" King is more than three times the size of a traditional chess set!
For limited spaces, this elegant teak chess set captures the feel of an oversized 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 (7.25"). The optimum chess board would be 8" squares, a standard tile size, yielding a chessboard 64" on each side.
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.
