So what exactly is a Chess Set? 

A Chess Set consists of 32 Chess Pieces and a Chess Board and some sets also include a chess box to store the pieces after game play. Some Chess Sets have extra queen pieces for pawn promotion. Whilst browsing our chess set categories you will find many that include the pieces, board and box as a complete chess set.

A Staunton Chess Set is the ultimate for players and collectors alike. It's present standing in its impeccable ancestry is unquestioned. The firm introduced the first Staunton design to players in October of 1849 and has 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 equipment. 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 will always hold its value and constantly brings the highest prices at auction. The form, board presence and exquisite craftsmanship of a Jaques chess set have been recaptured in our Antiqued collection and are being offered for the first time through our company
