The German Barleycorn Bone Chessmen
1 of 5
Product ID: PGBC-1

Details 

This very attractive new bone design referred to as the German plain barleycorn and also the  "Nuremberg" which features considerable artistic turning and carving but lacks the foliate design of the standard Barleycorn design. It is so named because it was felt to have originated from Nuremberg, a major trading City in Bavaria, Germany in the 18th Century. Most chess collectors refer to this as the plain barleycorn.

From another historical perspective we are also told that this set almost resembles the James Madison and Thomas Jefferson set used at Montpelier and the set which is on display at Madison's home in Orange, VA.

It features a King which is 4 1/4" tall and a base diameter of 1 3/8" with green felt pads. The pictures are shown on our optional golden rosewood and camel bone chessboard which has 2" squares and which must be purchased separately.

The Madison Jefferson Bone Chessmen
1 of 6
Product ID: WCB-1
Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

This very attractive bone design we refer to as the "Madison-Jefferson" features considerable artistic turning and carving. It is so named because our former presidents Madison and Jefferson use to play their favorite game with an almost identical pattern set at Madison's home in Orange, VA.

George Washington owned a similar style of chess set which this style of Barleycorn is often referred to as. Some chess collectors refer to this also as a rope design by virtue of the rope patern around the bodies of the King and Queen.

It features a King which is 4 1/4" tall and a base diameter of 1 3/8" with green felt pads. The pictures are shown on our optional camel bone chessboard which is sold separately. We recommend you select the 20" version which has 2" squares.
