This design is particularly pleasing in that the knight carving displays a very proud, upright and refined appearance as if stood composed ready for battle. The rest of the pieces while retaining the characteristics of a Staunton pattern set also show a subtle resemblence to a cavalry lineup. This set is made available in genuine jet black ebony and features a 4" King with 1 3/4" base with leather pads. Extra queens included.
The Northern Upright (or Edinburgh) chess set was a popular precursor of the Staunton pattern and is thought to have partly inspired the first Staunton design. Our Northern Upright set is an accurate reproduction of this early 19th century pattern.

The Miramar design encompasses a great deal of both turned and carved workings and has unique design elements in every piece. So many chess sets have standard looking Staunton major pieces coupled with an interesting knight making the knight the differentiator between comparable sets. This set is different as the maker has focused on the entire set and not just the knights creating artistic balance in the set. It has been carved in red wood and boxwood and then buff finished to the highest standards.
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.
