A simply perfect chess piece and board combination! The Sandringham Series Staunton Chessmen are a flawless take on a classic design with some of the most precise lines we've seen on a modern Staunton chess set. The pieces are triple weighted and feature a four inch king. Carving consistency between each knight is peerless - there are few better examples of luxury chessmen out there. The board is a 21.6 inch deluxe wenge and maple veneer, made in Spain and of the highest quality.

If you are looking for tonal perfection and unsurpassed luxury then this chess set should be right at the top of your shopping list.

Excellent set, for me its not cheap but you get what you pay for. Pieces are the perfect size and the weight is spot on, feels really substancial when playing. Set gives an air of class and quality, very happy. One minor point is the optional feet, don't bother. Feels a bit cheeky to have to pay 80p extra when spending a lot on a chess set and they are just little disks of felt. Will find a nicer solution fit for such a quality chess set.
