Product Description

  • Traditional Staunton design.
  • 3 inch (76 mm) king.
  • Includes 2 additional queens.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with billiard cloth.
  • Presented with a superb walnut and maple board.
  • Complete with a beautiful sheesham case.
The ebonised chessmen in this Competition Compact Staunton Chess Set are beautifully finished and feature a three inch king height. The level of detail on these chessmen is phenomenal and the set includes two additional queens and a hand made polished sheesham box with sliding lid. The chessmen are perfectly matched with a superb walnut and maple chess board that was manufactured to precise specifications just outside of Barcelona, Spain.

If you are looking for a great quality chess set at a very competitive price then this bundle is the perfect choice.

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.

The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.

"Bought as a present for my husband. He loves the set (he has a few)! The quality is fantastic, the pieces feel really nice in hand and have a good weight to them...they also glide really nicely! The box to store the pieces in is really good quality as well."

"Excellent quality product. Very impressed and delivered the next day for no extra charge."

C Johnson, 1st February 2020

"I absolutely love this chess set! The quality is ridiculously astonishing!!! the pieces have a very nice glossy finish with nice green felt on its bottoms... My favourite part though, is the board. SO slick, the pieces slide on it like melted butter on toast! I highly recommend this set as it is used every day by me! (let’s not forget the box which in an of itself is crazy beautiful with a magnet close/open)"

"One very delighted husband"

V Flood, 10th July 2017

"Just started playing chess again after about 30 years, learning the game again with my 9 year old. After purchasing a cheap set from a local toy shop and discovering we really enjoyed the game, decided to buy a 'nice' set. After searching high and low online, I kept returning to this set as it seemed to offer the best balance of quality and price. I think it was a good choice, because I couldn't be happier with this set. The pieces are weighty, stable and beautifully carved. The knights are aggressive looking beasts and particularly impressive. My wife is quite happy to have it permanently on display because it looks so nice - in fact, she made a special place for it on the coffee table. The board has very nice veneers, and I like the simple design and slim edge frame as it leaves more space for the squares. Even the base is nicely finished, although it does benefit from the optional felt pads. I'd say the size of this set is sensible choice for people who don't want their chess set as the focal point of a room. It certainly isn't small, despite being described as such. I measured the board squares as exactly 1 3/4 inches - slightly larger than the description, and correctly proportioned for the pieces. The storage box is also very attractive, with a red felt base and interior. I like the way the sliding lid snaps securely shut via a magnetic latch. It matches the board colour a more closely than in the photos and is higher quality than I expected. This set certainly increases the inclination to have a game, and makes the game all the more enjoyable while playing."
