The Original Staunton in ebony and boxwood
Previous1 of 13Next
Product ID: OS1
Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

The very first Staunton chess piece design (referred latterly as Staunton pattern) was the design of Nathaniel Cook and later was endorsed by English Chess Champion, Howard Staunton in 1849.

The Staunton design has since gone through many iterations expressing art in the set and some individual masterpieces of master knight carvers with authentic and magnificent beauty in the horse (knight) carving which differs so much from the original, yet simplistic design from a master carvers point of view.
 
In actuality, the original knight and set as a whole is much more difficult to create than meets the eye. Our "Original Staunton" design we present here is a modern recreation of ours that took many months to complete to ensure that it was as near to the original Staunton (Cooke) pattern set of chessmen that was first released and given Howard Staunton's name. 
 
This set of 34 chessmen are of extremely high quality and will not disappoint any truly discerning buyer. The pieces are very well weighted and are being offered at a very special price for the season.

Comprising genuine ebony and buffed boxwood these pieces are a pleasure to handle with wider than normal base dimensions and excellent proportioning.

Greek Vase Solid Brass Chess Set

Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

This is a magnificent solid brass chess set patinad in an attractive red and green combination and features a king size of 14 cms (nearly 5.5") with King base diameter of 1 7/8". We recommend a chessboard with square size of 2 1/2" to do justice to this set such as the one shown.

These chessmen are shown on our bone and horn chessboard measuring 24" x 24" with 2 1/2" squares. This board is available as a separate purchase and can be viewed here: Bone and horn chessboards.
