Picture this beautiful Staunton wood chess set sitting atop your chess board ready for a game or just adding to the decor of your living room. Our British Staunton was inspired by the old British Chess Company design from many years ago. This chess set features a 3.5” tall king with a base diameter of 1.5”, an ideal size for casual chess games at home. Pieces have thick green baize pads for a soft feel on the chess board and are nicely weighted for stability. The golden rosewood has rich golden-brown colors and a beautiful grain while the cream colored natural boxwood is the perfect wood for the white chess pieces. The pieces are individually hand polished and lacquered to a beautiful shine. This old-world, heirloom quality chess set is a favorite with players and collectors alike with its traditional Staunton design.

British Staunton Chess Set - Golden Rosewood & Boxwood (3.5" King)
Chess Set shipped day after ordered and arrived just a few days later. Excellent quality! Pieces were exactly as advertised and beautifully machined/carved and finished. Was able to take advantage of sale, first order discount and free shipping. Customer service was excellent via email. I would have liked to have talked to someone directly prior to ordering, but it was difficult to connect with anyone via phone. Happy customer!Marc
