Product Description

  • Classic Staunton design.
  • Impeccable quality.
  • 3 inch (76 mm) king.
  • Weighted for perfect balance.
  • Bases covered with billiard cloth.
  • Unique Italian 16.5 inch (42 cm) board.
  • Solid sheesham storage box.
Elegant perfection: deluxe ebony Staunton chessmen partnered with a unique Italian wooden chess board.

The Highclere Series chess pieces are classic Staunton in design and are finished to an impeccable standard. Of particular note are the concave curved shanks and wide bases, and the conservative detailing of the knight is as traditional as it gets. With a 3 inch (76 mm) king height, these chessmen are relatively compact but without compromise in excellence. Each piece is polished by hand, balanced and weighted and has a green felted base.

The chessboard is high gloss lacquered briarwood and elm made by Italian artisans. The finish offers a level of opulence and, practically, affords protection and strength to the board surface. The chessmen reflect beautifully when set up and they glide effortlessly.

Finally, the set includes a flock lined solid sheesham chess piece case, hand made and polished with beeswax.

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.

"This is a beautiful chess set of exceptional quality and superb value"

R , 22nd July 2021

"Love it!!!"

M Rahim, 21st July 2021

"Herausragend schönes, handgefertigtes Schachbrett, das die Figuren im Licht widerspiegelt. Die detaillierten Figuren sind von höchster Qualität und fassen sich, gut gewichtet, an. In der, mit rotem Samt ausgekleideten Holzbox, findet die 3“- Serie auch stehend Platz. Versand war sicher verpackt, zügig und stets online nachverfolgbar. Insgesamt die hohen Erwartungen, trotz stolzem Preis, noch übertroffen."
