The Northern Upright design pre-cursors the Staunton chess pieces that are so familiar today. Also known as the Edinburgh Upright design, these pieces were very popular around the early 19th century. These pieces are faithful reproductions of this classic design which adorned the chess boards of the aristocracy and gentry of that century. Crafted from graded ebony and Boxwood, these pieces are elegant, sleek yet characterful with sharp lines and thin column shanks. The pieces are polished with natural waxes and finished to an exceptional standard.
A time honored chess piece design made from traditional woods, offering elements of pre-modernism throughout. A tall slender footprint, beautiful balance and detailing that is hard to find at this price level made these chess pieces something very special indeed.
