This wonderful Staunton pattern was made popular by the legendary Bobby Fischer, who was often photographed playing with his own set. This is a tournament-sized set that features a 3.875" King with a 1.625" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest boxwood.

The rich brown color of the Walnut and Maple Molded Edge chess board make a wonderful backdrop against the black high and boxwood high gloss pieces.
