Destiny Staunton Chessmen in bloodrosewood or ebony
1 of 7
Product ID: DESTB
Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

Introducing 'Destiny' the latest of our luxury Staunton pattern Tournament chess sets and one which features one of the finest carved knights you may ever see. The significance is in the fact that these knights are carved from a single piece of wood. The pictures show the set made in a bloodrosewood and boxwood combination but you can opt for a genuine ebony/boxwood version if you are more of a purist at this same special price. See options below:

Virtually all Staunton chess knights, (even for sets costing thousands of dollars) have a knight made of two components, a turned base made separately from the carved top half usually also hand carved separately. The two pieces are normally then connected via a dowel and then glued together.

Destiny is so different as she is made by one master craftsman from a single piece of wood- there are no joins, dowels or glue! This single fact alone separates it from every other Staunton Tournament set out there in this artistic class.

As for the set itself, well this is also exceptional. The King is 4.4" tall and has a base diameter of 1 7/8". The pieces have leaded bases (now not normally used in chess manufacture) and offer quadruple weighting with the King at 4.6 ounces. All pieces have pristine cut green felt pads on their wide bases which should be expected for a fine set of custom chessmen like these.

Enormous attention to detail has been invested in this design...in every respect. What's more the other  pieces are based precisely around the very first Staunton chess set that Howard Staunton gave his name to.

This set of 34 pieces can also be shipped in our luxury storage case which is available as an additional purchasable product option. The case may be viewed by following this link: http://www.thechesspiece.com/proddetail.asp?prod=Custom-Leather-storage-case-for-4-to-4-1%2F2%22-King-Staunton-chess-pieces
