1865 Edition 4" Boxwood & Black Chess Pieces

The Official Staunton™ Chess Company

£249.00 GBP 


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 set featured a king height of 3.5 inches, 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.
