St. George luxury chess pieces presented in traditional Ebony and Boxwood. This design originates from the famous St George Chess Club and was a very popular in England circa 1800. This design predates the familiar Staunton look and features a stylised 'stacked disc' detailing. The pieces are substantial in the hand and weighted perfectly. In many ways they represent a dicotomy of tradition mixed with a simplified design that could be described today as modernist.
These chess pieces are of the highest caliber, produced in limited quantities and will sit perfectly on any of our 23 inch boards. A total of four queens are included as is a genuine certificate of authenticity.
