Product Description

  • Traditional Staunton design.
  • Superb detail and high quality finish.
  • 3.5 inch (11 cm) king
  • Beautifully turned from ebony.
  • Each piece is perfectly weighted with broad felted bases.
  • High grade montgoy palisander and maple 21.7 inch board.
  • A chess piece case and wooden clock completes this set.

Based on the traditional Staunton design, the 1853 Paulsen Reproduction pieces are handcrafted from solid ebony and boxwood. They are painstakingly carved and finished to perfection and the bases (quite broad for this height) are then covered with billiard cloth so that your board will not be damage during battle. The 1853 Paulsen Reproduction chess men have a 3.5 king and have been named after Louis Paulsen (Jan 1833 to August 1891) who, during the 1860 and 1870’s, was among the top five players in the world.

To accommodate these historic pieces, we have matched them with a beautiful 21.7 inch board from Spain. The high grade montgoy palisander and maple veneers create a beautiful playing field for The Paulsen pieces and, with its 2.17 inch playing squares, accommodates the pieces perfectly.

Whilst not in play, there is a stunning wenge coloured wooden chess piece case included. These cases are crafted by the world famous, family run business, Manopoulos of Greece, renowned for their skill and expertise in this field. The box features a large compartment and with the brass colour hinges and clasps, this case is a timeless classic.

A traditional chess clock with wind-up mechanism made in Europe, completes this stunning luxury set.

Wind-up Mechanism - No Batteries Required

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.
