1849 Staunton Antique Distressed Edition 4.4" Chessmen & Italian Mahogany Coffer
To say we are delighted with this new addition to our 2020 winter catalogue would be an understatement! Quite simply the best! The lustre finish and antique distressed colour is something to behold. We have also used untreated Indian ebony wood highlighting the beautiful and natural shades of ebony flowing through the wood.
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 Staunton, 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.
