Official Staunton™ Chess Company

£699.95 GBP 


Our rendition of an early weighted boxwood and ebony 3.5 Inch Library Staunton Chess Set size by Jaques of London.

The rims of the bases of the white king with impressed mark “Official Staunton”. One knight and one rook from each side with small impressed crown to their tops to donate kings side when playing.

A sublime chessboard manufactured in Italy. A solid wood framed chess board incorporating a Santos Palisander and Maple playing area. These boards are meticulous hand assembled and finished. 

In the meticulous build, we have an expansion gap to enable natural movement in the wood thus preventing warping and or splitting over time, something that has been in the past very problematic, no more!  A stunning beautiful furniture piece that would grace any room or office.
