A Staunton Chess Set is the ultimate for players and collectors alike. Its present standing in its impeccable ancestry is unquestioned. The London based John Jaques firm introduced the first Staunton design to players in October of 1849 and have been producing the world standard ever since.

World Championship matches from the Zukertort Blackburn battle in 1882 to the Karpov - Kasparov encounters over 100 years later were played on original Jaques Chess Sets. At Fischer's insistence, three were made for their legendary World Championship encounter in Reykjavik. Korchnoi and Karpov would not start play in their World Championship match in Manila until an original Jaques could be provided. Jaques have been and are the "Gold Standard" . A Jaques set will always hold its value and constantly brings the highest prices at auction. The form, board presence and exquisite craftsmanship of a Jaques set have been recaptured in our Antiqued collection and are being offered for the first time through our company
