  • Perfectly weighted and felted.

The Reproduction Staunton Ebony Chessmen 1869 Model are an imposing set of chess men boasting a 4 inch king including the royal finial. With their highly detailed and superb finish, these beautiful pieces are supplied by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest chessmen. They have been turned from solid wood then painstakingly carved with exquisite detailing on all the pieces but especially the knights.

A commissioned design made by Rechapados Ferrer S.A. of Spain, the board is of a high grade veneer construction implementing beautiful black anegre around the border and edges of the board. At 23.6 inches (60 cm) in width and with a square size of 2.36 inches (60 mm), this deluxe chess board is substantial in size. The playing surface is created from veneer squares of jet black anegre wood and light maple wood. It is then finished in a rich deep gloss lacquer creating a chess playing surface with the deepest of blacks. Perfect for these chess pieces.

To ensure safe storage of pieces when not in play, this perfectly constructed laminated wenge coloured large wooden Chess Piece case is the finishing touch to this magnificent set. Manufactured by the famous family run company, Manopoulos of Greece, you can rest assured it has been well made by expert craftsmen. Featuring a large compartment together with the addition of brass colour hinges and the Manopoulos signature brass clasps to keep the lid closed, the resulting product is a timeless classic. All in all, this is a stunning chess set combination to grace any home.

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.
