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. These masterpieces have been inspired by the turn-of-the-century Staunton Chessmen manufactured by Jaques of London in the 1890s. 

The design and feel of these Chessmen make them ideal for both Tournament and Rapid Play (Blitz) Chess. As with all House of Staunton Chessmen, they exemplify the perfect combination of beauty and functionality. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!

The set was named after the legendary US Chess Player Frank Marshall, who was the United States Chess Champion from 1909-1936, a reign of 27 years that is unlikely to be equaled. Frank was one of the original Chess Grandmasters, a title that was granted by Russian Tsar Nicholas II in 1914.

The Marshall 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 inside of the lid 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.)
