During the first half of the 19th century, a surge in the global popularity of chess brought about the demand for a uniform model of chess pieces. While the variety and styles of chess pieces that were in use at the time were extensive, they were decorative in nature and considered unsuitable for play. It is important to remember that chess has historically been enjoyed by the wealthy, a fact that is reflected in the artistic designs of chess sets that dominated the marketplace. While aesthetically beautiful, the chess pieces of the period were not very practical. The chess pieces were expensive to produce, cumbersome to use, prone to tipping over and had such ornate details that they were unable to withstand the wear and tear of regular use. However the greatest disadvantage of these chess sets was the lack of uniformity of the pieces within a chess set – a player’s unfamiliarity with a particular chess set could affect the outcome of the game. Complaints such as these led to the search for a standard design of chess pieces. On September 1, 1849, #58607 – An Ornamental Design for a Set of Chess-Men was registered by Mr. Nathaniel Cooke under the British Ornamental Designs Act of 1842.

If you decide to go with a wooden board, chess pro Mr. Dlugy advised purchasing the flat as opposed to the fold-up style. “Solid boards are simply more stationary,” he said. Mr. Seirawan agreed: “A flat board is much preferred as the fold is distracting.”
We have recently added two new styles of chess boards to our selection. The first type is a very high quality Black Anegre and Maple board that has been produced with a high gloss. This board is a nice complement to our luxury Ebony black chess pieces. These two types of boards are available in sizes from just under 18 inches square to 23.6 inches square. The second type of board is a design exclusive to The Regency Chess Company. It features Black Anegre squares and a medium brown Palisander border. These boards are also finished in a gloss lacquer and they are also available in four different sizes. Both of these fine Spanish boards feature precisely inlaid veneers that have been made to a very high standard.

Although the golden rosewood vs ebony isn’t traditional, I like that it is darker. My board has darker squares and border, so plain boxwood never looked quite right on it. I look forward to receiving what will hopefully be my first quality chess set! I will update you guys when I get it next week 🙂
I can personally vouch for the integrity and reliablity of USCF (2nd link) and can also assure you that they rarely have the best prices regardless of what you’re looking for. I’m pretty sure the other sites here are all reputable esp chesscafe.com but you can always look up ratings/reviews of each dealer using a search engine if you don’t get enough feedback here.
