Product Description

  • Classic Staunton design.
  • Superb detail and finish.
  • Beautifully carved from boxwood.
  • Weighted and felted.
  • 3 inch (76 mm) king.
  • Beautifully crafted 16.75 inch board from Italy.
  • Outstanding quality briarwood and elm.
  • 1.55 inch playing squares.
  • Quality chess piece case from Greece.

As we know, the Highgrove Series Ebonised Staunton Chess pieces are supplied by the same chess workshop that produces some of the world's finest hand crafted chessmen. As such, they are very detailed and superbly finished small chessmen in the classic Staunton design with a beautifully carved knight and bishop.

With a three inch king and broad bases, these pieces will sit perfectly on the smaller version, but no less outstanding quality, Italian made Briarwood and Elm veneer chess board. The veneer squares are bordered with a thin veneer of Ebony that sections off the playing area from the edge. Finished in quality lacquer, the wood grain and knotting of the Briarwood looks simply sublime and has a rich depth of tone and burl patterning that can never ceases to impress. The underside of the board features a lacquered wooden veneer and has felting pads to protect surfaces underneath. A very worthy battlefield for the Highgrove Chess Men.

When not in play, the chess men can be kept safe and pristine in their own case. Perfectly constructed in laminated dark wenge coloured wood by the famous family owned and run company, Manopoulos of Greece, you can be confident this chess piece case has been well made by experts in their field. The addition of brass colour hinges and the Manopoulos signature brass clasps to keep the lid closed

The combination of these three high quality components results in a product that is classic and timeless.

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.
