The Highclere Series Ebony Staunton Chess Pieces are highly detailed and superbly finished small chessmen. The design is classic Staunton, with a beautifully carved knight and bishop. Supplied by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest chessmen, the set comprises a 3 inch king and whilst the set is relatively compact in size, there is certainly no compromise in detail or excellence. Each piece is polished by hand, balanced and perfectly weighted and their broad bases are covered with green billiard cloth.

We have matched The Highclere chess men with a superbly presented wooden chess board crafted from quality walnut and maple veneers. Renowned for their expertise in marquetry and backgammon sets, this 19.7 inch board is produced by the reputable family Manopoulous based in Greece and has a delightful old fashioned artisanal feel and look about it.

For when you are ready to tear yourself away from this set, we have added a perfectly constructed chess piece case in laminated dark wenge coloured wood. This superb piece is also crafted by Manopoulos of Greece, so you can rest assured product has been well made by expert craftsmen. The brass colour hinges and the Manopoulos signature brass clasps to keep the lid closed add to the elegance of this box.

This combination of pieces, board and box creates a beautifully traditional and timeless classic chess set for your 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.
