These 1849 Reproduction Staunton Chessmen, with a 4.4 inch king, are handcrafted in high grade ebony and boxwood in the form of the world famous and classic Staunton design. Sourced from the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest and luxury chessmen, these stunning pieces have been turned from solid wood, painstakingly carved with their beautiful detailing and superbly finished.

At 4.4 inches, the king strikes a formidable pose with his intricate finial and double banding on the collar. He, along with his supporting army, is perfectly weighted for balance and all the chess pieces bases are covered with billiard cloth to protect your board.

You will note that the kings in this set are branded at the base with the words “Staunton 1849”. These ebony reproduction pieces also bear the original markings of the king’s crown on 1 black knight, 1 black rook, 1 white knight and 1 white rook. As we know, these pieces will sit on the king’s flank. This was a practical innovation to identify their position on the king’s side of the board. This is because, in descriptive chess notation, the rooks and knights are often referred to as the ‘queen’s knight’, or the ‘king’s rook’.

The high quality grade of ebony and boxwood used to create this set makes it not only an enviable acquisition but also a superb investment and heirloom for future generations.

In consideration of the king’s height and broad base, these peerless chess men have been matched with a quality 23.6 inch (60 cm) black printed light maple chess board. Manufactured by chess artisans Rechapados Ferrer S.A. of Spain using only high grade veneers in its construction with modern fabrication techniques, this has produced a minimalist contemporary design with sharp contrasting lines and critical detailing. The jet black squares seen against the extra light maple is simply seductive. An expertly veneered wood base adds the finishing touch, perfect to accompany these imposing chess pieces to create a timeless chess set.

Four queens are included for pawn promotion.

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wood veneers, expertly lacquered and finished. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer in a different color from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.
