This is our antique reproduction chess set of the Northern Upright that was produced in the mid 19th century. We believe this is the most elegant and attractive of the various designs. The Northern Upright prominently features large, straight columns on all of its pieces, thus the likely origin of its name. This beautiful recreation is produced in genuine ebony and boxwood, though the original sets were most often made in ivory, which of course is no longer an option. The king has an urn shaped head while the queen has a perfectly round shaped head, both with small pointed finials. The knights are carved with intricate detail and the bishop has a large, gaping miter that is uniquely attractive. This chess set makes a beautiful display and will impress any chess connoisseur with its unique and beautiful design and quality of the craftsmanship.
