The Original Staunton in ebony and boxwood

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.
