10" x 10" Square Magnetic Chess Set
Product ID: 10MAGSQ1
Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

An exceptional travel magnetic chess set made in a golden rosewood and boxwood combination with a King at 2.0 inches high and a total weight of just over 3 lbs. The set measures 10 inches x 10 inches and is 1.75 inches thick. The set has an internal insert for each chess piece within the sliding drawer. This comes with the German knight design and single queens as shown in the pictures.

With many cheap travel sets on the market, this isn't one of them - a very good value and high quality magnetic chess set. 

It is supplied with a high quality thick black zippered vinyl carry bag. Most other vendors supply a cheap thin cloth velour green bag.

Please note. This set is made of golden rosewood and boxwood. Due to very strict export controls introduced as a result of the CITES treaty and proof of origin this wood cannot be exported from India without a government license. As a result most manufacturers are now using Acacia wood as a substitute which looks very similar. Once our stock is exhausted we will no longer be supplying this product in this format.

The Original Staunton in ebony and boxwood
1 of 13
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.

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
