Handcrafted in high-quality graded ebony and boxwood in the world-renowned traditional Staunton design, these JJ Cooke Reproduction Staunton Chessmen are impeccably detailed and superbly finished.

Crafted in the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest luxury chessmen, these stunning pieces are turned from solid wood, painstakingly carved with sublime detail, then hand-polished to create a perfect finish on each individual piece.

At a height of 4.4 inches, the king is an imposing regal figure with the double banding detail on his collar and intricate finial. He, along with every piece in his army, is perfectly weighted for balance and billiard cloth is applied to their bases to protect the luxury chess board.

You will observe that the kings in this set are uniquely branded at the base with the date “1849”. These ebony reproduction pieces also bear the distinguishable markings of the king’s crown on a single white knight and one white rook and one black knight, one black rook. A seasoned player will know that before play begins these particular pieces will be sitting on the Kings flank making this feature a practical innovation to identify them as they traverse the board. In descriptive chess notation, the rooks and knights were often referred to as being, for example, the ‘queens knight, or the ‘king’s rook’. As you would expect from a luxury set, this set of chessmen includes two additional queens, for pawn promotion.

In view of the king’s superior height and broad base these chessmen are best matched with a board with larger squares. To complete the set, we have chosen this beautiful de-luxe board created in Wenge and Maple. Wenge wood is frequently used in modern interiors due to its parallel graining and abundant dark, rich tones. This superb quality, extra-large chess board is produced by master chessboard maker Rechapados Ferrer of Spain. High-grade wenge and maple veneered construction is used throughout, including the base. Modern fabrication techniques are employed, which produce a board with clean, contemporary lines and meticulous detailing. This board is the perfect match for these exquisite chessmen.

With its unique features and use of the highest quality ebony and boxwood, this luxury chess set makes not only an enviable acquisition but also a worthy investment and exceptional heirloom for future generations.

If you can bear to put these beautiful ornaments away, we also have a wide range of chess piece cases.
