Indulge in the sheer magnificence of this extraordinary hand-crafted chess set, meticulously fashioned in the timeless Staunton pattern, reverently preserving its rich history dating back to 1849. This exclusive piece isn't just a chess set; it's a collector's dream come true, destined to become the centrepiece of any serious chess aficionado's collection.

The pieces themselves are true works of art, showcasing an antique finish that's been expertly applied to achieve an astonishingly authentic patina look. The care and attention to detail put into each piece is nothing short of exceptional. With their substantial 4-inch kings, core-weighted for added stability, and felted counterparts, these pieces exude regal elegance and are designed for both play and display. They are more than chess pieces; they are heirlooms in the making.

Pairing these magnificent chess pieces with our handcrafted 23-inch chessboard is a match made in heaven. This rustic ebony and acacia maple chessboard is not only a playing surface but also a visual masterpiece. Its large and heavy stature commands attention, turning any game into an event. It's a true statement piece, beautifully authentic in its appearance, and showcases the chess set with grandeur. If your preference leans toward a flawlessly modern chessboard, this may not be your ideal choice. This chessboard is completely hand-built and as such may display imperfections indicative of the build-by-hand 

If you're in the market for a truly unique and unforgettable addition to your chess collection, this set is an absolute must-have. However, it's essential to note that our current stock of these boards features exquisite maple wood and ebony embellishments at opposite end, which add a touch of sophistication to this already remarkable ensemble.

This exceptional chess set and board combination is more than just a game; it's a piece of history, a work of art, and a symbol of prestige. Elevate your chess experience to new heights and own a piece of chess history.

please note: the current stock of these boards has maple and ebony wood embellishments at opposites as shown in the images

Attention overseas customers: Please note that your order may be subject to customs taxes, which must be paid directly to your governing tax office.

In the realm of hand-carved products, it's essential to acknowledge that the artistry involved in crafting chess pieces and related items by hand can lead to unique variations. The use of wood, being a natural material, inherently results in differences in color, shade, and tone.

Furthermore, please keep in mind that the hand-carving process may introduce subtle differences between individual pieces within a set, adding to their individual character.

Additionally, for transparency, we want to clarify that the use of veneer is exclusive to our chess boards and boxes. All other items, including chess pieces and related accessories, are crafted from solid wood unless explicitly stated otherwise in our listings. This distinction is made to ensure compliance with CITES regulations governing lumber species while maintaining the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of our hand-carved products.

Hand-Carved Products Disclaimer:

  • Variations in Wood: Due to the natural and inconsistent nature of wood, expect variations in color, wood tones, shade, and tone.
  • Artistic Hand-Carving: Hand-carved products may exhibit subtle differences between individual pieces, enhancing their unique character and wood variance.
  • Approximate Weights and Sizes: Provided weights and sizes are approximate guides, considering the handmade nature of our products.
  • Chess Boards and Boxes: Unless explicitly labeled as "solid wood," chess boards and boxes are made with veneer to comply with CITES regulations. Other items are crafted from solid wood for quality and compliance.
