Handcrafted in high quality ebony and boxwood in the world famous and classic Staunton design, these 1851 Reproduction Staunton Chessmen are highly detailed and superbly finished. a 4.4 inch king, Created by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest chessmen, these stunning pieces have been turned from solid wood then painstakingly carved with beautiful detailing.

At 4.4 inches, the king is an towering elegant figure with his intricate finial and double banding detail on his collar. He, along with every piece in his supporting army, is perfectly weighted for balance and have billiard cloth applied to their bases to protect your board.

You will notice that the kings in this set are branded at the base with the words “1851”, these ebony reproduction pieces also bear the distinguishable markings of the kings crown on one white knight and one white rook and one black knight, one black rook. As we know, these pieces will sit on the Kings flank. This was a practical innovation to identify their position on the King’s side of the board. This is because, in descriptive chess notation, the rooks and knights were often referred to as being the ‘queens knight, or the ‘king’s rook’. As you would expect from a luxury set, this set of chessmen offers two additional queens, for promotion.

With the high quality grade of ebony and boxwood used to create this set, makes it not only an enviable acquisition but also a worthy investment and phenomenal heirloom for future generations.

For the king’s height and broad base in this set, these lovely chess men are best matched with boards from 21 inches with larger squares. We also have a wide range of chess piece cases, if you can bear to put these lovely ornaments away.
