Picture this beautiful Staunton wood chess set sitting atop your chess board ready for a game or just adding to the décor 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 1.375”, 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 genuine ebony chess pieces are obsidian black 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.

    Everything perfect. The pieces are nicely weighted and have a wonderful "feel". Well packed and very handsome on the tulip red erable board.

    Very satisfied

    Lovely look and feel to all pieces, a pleasure to hold and feel. Classy colour. Pieces very nicely carved and look 'right'. If I have a small quibble (and it is only a small one), I'm inclined to think the kings are a little too tall and broad based relative to the Rooks and minor pieces, which I think would benefit from just a touch more height...or a 3'' king would match their current heights better than the 3.5'' one I got. But overall, very satisfied. One decision I agonized over but feel I got right was to pay extra to get 'ebony' wood instead of 'ebonized'. I thought they would look much the same, but they don't, ebony looks significantly better.
