Staunton is the greatest for gamers and collectors alike. Its current standing in its lineage that is impeccable is unquestioned. The Staunton design was introduced by the firm Jaques of London to players in October of 1849 and have already been creating the planet regular since. World Championship matches in the Zukertort Blackburn battle in 1882 - Kasparov confrontations over 100 years after were played on initial Jaques equipment. At the insistence of Fischer, three were created due to their celebrated World Championship encounter in Reykjavik. A Jaques chess set of pieces will always hold its value and constantly brings the very best prices at auction. The form, board presence and exquisite craftsmanship of a Jaques happen to be recaptured in our Antiqued set and are being supplied for the first time through our firm

Our firm has really been in the chess business for many years, in this time we have met with a number of the best and chess established makers and some dealers that are called, experts. It has been an experience to say the least! Our business director, Carl Miceli has spent years searching for  the best chess sets and chess boards producers to make sure our firm offers nothing less than absolute quality. Time is a great leveler and Carl has used this time to sift through the various middle men peddling lousy quality chess sets and now only works using the top 3 main manufacturing companies in Amritsar, India.

It has taken considerable time and hard-learned lessons to finally get to a stage where we currently only deal with the greatest! So all in all, a learning curve that was costly, but one that allows us to move ahead positively and assured that we are retailing the best hand carved chess pieces available in the marketplace.

When you research the internet for " chess sets" you'll be presented with a google page of numerous relevant chess companies to pick from. Just how do you know what to pick? Do you look for the lowest cost for example? What in regards to the quality of a chess set? What about the stuff used to make it? Does it stand the test of time, and will the set be a quality set of chess pieces to hand generations down? All these are questions to contemplate when spending lots of your hard earned cash. Our assurance to our clients is that you could be certain of quality, backed with all the information that your chess set has been hand carved using quality stuff and produced with attention and care to detail.

Indeed investing in a chess established may present with many decisions. Size of the chess pieces, the base diameter of the king (generally the greatest piece) will the parts fit on the board you could already have? or considering of purchasing. The standard-size as employed in tournament chess competitions is approx 3.75-Inch (95mm)
