Marvels of grace, balance, beauty and simplicity... This is the classic set that established a world-wide standard used since the mid-19th C. Study the King's crown and Queen's coronet, details of bishops and rooks, knights modeled after marble stallion heads from the Parthenon, on down to the diminutive pawn. Admire the simple, yet elegant contours. Well-weighted. Shaped to hold, to touch, and to admire...

Our production is a detailed replica of an original set manufactured by the British 'Jaques' 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. 

The set has embellishments pioneered by Jaques of London which include the king side stamping (see images)

4.4 Inch King height- Ebony/Boxwood. Triple core weighted. 

A large fitted coffer that exudes quality and practicality all in one.
