Happy New Year — “Check”

Dinner at Raymond & Jeanne's. This chess set was one of Raymond's Christmas gifts.
I think it was purchased from House of Staunton — https://www.houseofstaunton.com/ — where they "size" the set by the height of the king. Makes sense.

This was a tournament set, having been used in the 2017 Sinquefield Cup, an elite international event featuring 10 of the strongest chess players in the world: https://grandchesstour.org/2017-grand-chess-tour/sinquefield_cup

First post of 2018, so I'm already more than 3 weeks behind…

It's a beautiful set with what looks like inlaid wood. Are the pieces large?

@janeandcharlie It's a set that was used in St. Louis area chess tournaments. It was purchased from a seller that sells previously-used, tournament sets. That rook may be 2" tall?
