If you are looking for the perfect classic chess set combination in true traditional style then  our production is a detailed replica of an original set manufactured by the British 'Jaques' company, circa 1849-55.  English chess master, Howard Saunton, promoted this set at the first international chess tournament in 1851. Its clearly distinguishable pieces soon became the competition standard known as the 'Staunton' set. 

The set has embellishments pioneered by Jaques of London which include the king side stamping (see images)

The chessboard is constructed using palisander and maple inlays and has a thick solid mahogany frame which compliments both the pieces and chess box.

The box is truly beautiful mahogany with a black delimiter stripe accentuating this superb quality chess box
