1849 Cooke Morphy 4.4" King Edition Distressed Antique & Natural Ebony

Official Staunton™ Chess Company

£449.00 GBP 


A magnificent reproduction of an early Cooke 1849 chess set. Our artisans have applied a technique called " distress antiquing" which is a process which results in the chess pieces looking aged worn and well used'! Therefore this set is best suited to the serious chess collector and connoisseur 

Instead of the original 3.5," version we decided to recreate this beautiful set with a much larger 4.4 " King. The general consensus among chess collectors favoured this size. 

Antiqued Distressed Boxwood and Natural Matt Ebony- PLEASE NOTE - This set has purposely been made to look aged antique and used 

King height is 4.4″ and base size is 2.00″.

This set includes King side stamping to Knight and Rook and Kings foot rim bears our company insignia
