1849 Chess Set. We are delighted with this latest addition to our winter 2018 catalogue. This set is the best 1849 reproduction in the World, nothing comes close! Collectors Worldwide are raving positively about this design. 

Our production is a detailed replica in the style of an original set manufactured by the British company, circa 1849. English chess master, Howard Saunton, promoted this set at the first international chess tournament in 1851. Its clearly distinguishable pieces soon became the competition standard known as the 'Staunton' set.
