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

The James Bennett Series 25" Luxury Chessboard
1 of 4
Product ID: Ellip3

Details 

At TheChessPiece we are always pleased to introduce new products inspired by ourselves, our vendors and our customers.

One of our many valued customers, James Bennett purchased a fine set of chessmen from us and then was so impressed with the set he personally designed a chessboard which he thought would best suit and enhance the artistic value. He was so pleased with the result he sent us pictures and allowed us to take the idea to market. We were so inspired with the design we put it into production ourselves and this series completely emerged as a result of that great customer-vendor interaction.

Completely different from anything else,  these boards are hand made in the exotic wood padauk and maple and is  available here with a square size of 2.5”.

The rails are made of a solid piece of padauk with the embellishment routed out of part of that same piece of wood which emphasizes the shape and board geometry. The underside is covered completely with lush black felt which will protect the surface on which it is placed whether a fine piece of furniture or a table.

Price is for the chessboard and does not include the chess pieces displayed on it. The set of pieces shown is our popular Alban set which can be purchased separately.

Please note: Ships from the US so we guarantee you will not find yourself unexpectedly being asked to pay import duties or brokerage fees by the delivery service if delivered within the contiguous US. In addition, should you decide to return any products purchased from TheChessPiece.com you return it to our US shipping location, not overseas. If you purchase online from an overseas vendor we advise you check their returns policy .Products bought from overseas vendors may cost a few rupees (among other currencies) to send but could cost many dollars to return.

Greek Vase Solid Brass Chess Set
Product ID: G-1010
Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

This is a magnificent solid brass chess set patinad in an attractive red and green combination and features a king size of 14 cms (nearly 5.5") with King base diameter of 1 7/8". We recommend a chessboard with square size of 2 1/2" to do justice to this set such as the one shown.

These chessmen are shown on our bone and horn chessboard measuring 24" x 24" with 2 1/2" squares. This board is available as a separate purchase and can be viewed here: Bone and horn chessboards.

Given the classic nature of this set a discerning buyer may consider making his own chessboard using 2.5 to 3" tiles. In that scenario these grand chessmen can be placed on a chessboard that fits in very well with the color scheme/design of the space it is to be placed, such as a courtyard.

The Original Staunton antiqued in ebony and antiqued boxwood
1 of 7
Product ID: OS1A
Based on 2 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 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.

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?
