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.

The Colombian Knight Bloodrosewood Chess Set
Product ID: G-280-BTL
Based on 5 ratings. (View)

Details 

This triple weighted premium design was launched by us in 2006 is available in  rich bloodrosewood rosewood. The King is 4.5" tall (to tip of finial) and has a base diameter of 1.85".

We love the knight in this design for the great expression and detail. Please be aware that since we launched this set we have seen several poor quality copies which are cheaper. Just take a look at the knights eyes and you will immediately realize that the carver isn't the craftsman we use. Quality is all in the details so don't opt for 2nd best!

This set is available with a choice of either leather or felt pads! Need advise?

Destiny Staunton Chessmen
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
