The Original Staunton antiqued in ebony and antiqued boxwood
Previous1 of 7Next
Product ID: OS1
Based on 2 ratings. (View)

Details 

The original 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. This original Staunton design we present here is a recreation of ours that took many months to complete to ensure that it was as near to the original Staunton 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 antiqued boxwood these pieces are a pleasure to handle with wider than normal base dimensions and excellent proportioning.

This set is available for immediate shipping from Florida.

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 1.86".

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!

The Miramar design is exclusive to us and embodies probably the best and worst in chess set design depending on your view as a buyer.

Without any doubt, this is a set that exceeds all the standards expected for a tournament chess set in size, weighting, carving and turning quality and finish at a price which is extremely acceptable for such magnificent craftsmanship.

The King in this set is 4.5" tall and has a base diameter of 1 7/8" taking account of the routed base and has felted pads.

This is a triple weighted set with additional queens.
