description & information:
By The House of Staunton
This hand carved wooden Chess set features a 4.0" King with a 1.875" diameter base and weighs an incredible 60 ounces.

Nothing can heighten your Chess playing experience more than the feel and weight of finely crafted Staunton Chess set. We are proud to offer our heirloom quality Collector Series Chessmen from the House of Staunton. This heavily weighted set has been crafted to replicate the exquisite design and proportions of the original Staunton pattern Chessmen, registered by Nathaniel Cook in March of 1849 and first manufactured by Jaques of London in September 1849. The distinctive feature of this set is the the open-mitered Bishop and our Knight design, which is modeled after the noble steeds from the Greek Parthenon (Elgin Marbles) and are unsurpassed in beauty and craftsmanship. These are far superior to any production Staunton pattern chess set available today - at ANY PRICE!

The Collector Series Chessmen come with gold embossed leather pads on both Kings, a personalized Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's label indicating the production number is affixed to the underside of each box.

The Chessmen are new and come housed in a Premium House of Staunton Red Burl box which is lined in green billiard cloth, divided and features brass quadrant hinges and a lock & key. The House of Staunton logo is laser etched on the lid of the box.  Each set consists of 34 Chessmen, 17 light and 17 dark (including the two additional Queens.)
