Handcrafted in high quality ebony and boxwood in the world famous and classic Staunton design, these 1851 Reproduction Staunton Chessmen are highly detailed and superbly finished. a 4.4 inch king, Created by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest chessmen, these stunning pieces have been turned from solid wood then painstakingly carved with beautiful detailing.

At 4.4 inches, the king is an towering elegant figure with his intricate finial and double banding detail on his collar. He, along with every piece in his supporting army, is perfectly weighted for balance and have billiard cloth applied to their bases to protect your board.

As we know, these pieces will sit on the Kings 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 were often referred to as being the ‘queens knight, or the ‘king’s rook’. As you would expect from a luxury set, this set of chessmen offers two additional queens, for promotion.

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