This spectacular chess set is named after Napoleon Bonaparte's famous Arabian stallion for which he rode during the famous battle of Marengo. This chess set takes Staunton design to a new level with its artistic and elegant features. The knight is beautifully sculpted with realistic features and an elegant pose with its mane flowing back and head turned down. Only the best carvers in the world can accurately carve and replicate the details of this knight from piece to piece. All of the pieces are beautifully shaped with a unique and elegant profile that creates a coherent pattern from pawn to king. The lathe work is simply extraordinary. This set is made from genuine ebony and boxwood and the pieces are heavily weighted for for exceptional stability on the chess board.

The Marengo is a large set with a king that is 4.25" tall and a base of 1.875". The king features a highly ornate finial that is unique from any other chess set in our collection. The pieces have thick green baize pads so you can slide your pieces across the board or sit down softly. We include an extra queen for each color for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set name is, the type of wood, the year it was made, and where it came from. Whether you are a collector or looking for your one special chess set, you will be thoroughly pleased with Marengo!

    Morengo Chess Pieces

    Posted by Linda King on 12th Apr 2021

    These pieces are breathtakingly beautiful, the details are amazing. They arrived before they were due, and were so carefully packaged. I have been agonizing over this choice for months because of the price, no regrets.

    Marengo Staunton Chess Set

    Posted by Elizabeth Muncey on 17th Mar 2021

    This was purchased as a gift for my boyfriend (an avid chess player). The pieces are extremely well made and he was over the moon. Overall, this is an exquisite set and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you to Ryan and Jeff at the Chess Store for helping to make this decision - your expertise is greatly appreciated!
