Official Staunton™ Chess Company

£249.00 GBP 

Share:

A fine reproduction of a Jaques London chess set circa 1925. Beautifully hand carved and turned using the finest grade boxwood. A full sized tournament chess set ideal for match-play. Perfectly balanced pieces, ease of movement with sufficient heft.

The original Jaques set featured a king height of 3.5 inch, we have increased this to 4.00 inch whilst maintaining the design specifics.  The finishing to these mid range chess pieces is something you would expect to see in a higher priced set with a luxury tag!  As with all the Official Collection, expect nothing but quality at an affordable price point!  

The Kings have the Official Staunton engraved hallmark.

Matched perfectly with our solid framed mahogany chessboard, equally complimented with our solid mahogany felt lined chess box. A magnificent set.

Black Deluxe Chessboard 21 inch

A quality Black and Light Maple chess board produced by chess artisans, Rechapados Ferrer S.A. of Spain. Beautiful birds eye maple veneer construction, coupled with contemporary fabrication techniques has produced a board with clean lines and critical detailing.

The Maple veneer combined with modern lithographic printing techniques produces a board with the darkest black squares, creating a board with the greatest contrast. This contemporary board is simply seductive and a beautifully veneered grey wood base adds the finishing touch.
