Indulge in the utmost quality and exceptional craftsmanship of these 1849 Reproduction Staunton Chessmen. Each piece, featuring the iconic Staunton design, is a true work of art, meticulously crafted from the finest ebony and boxwood. The 4.4 inch king boasts intricate detailing, with a beautifully carved finial and dual bands on his collar. These exquisite pieces, produced by the world's renowned chess workshop, are expertly turned from solid wood and perfectly weighted for a smooth, balanced game. Plus, each piece is thoughtfully designed with billiard cloth on the base for extra protection.

The branding of "Staunton 1849" on the base of the kings in this chess set is a testament to its authenticity. Additionally, the ebony reproduction pieces feature the original markings of the king's crown on 1 black knight, 1 black rook, 1 white knight, and 1 white rook, further adding to the value of this set. This practical innovation allows for easy identification of the pieces' positions on the King's side of the board, as they were often referenced in descriptive chess notation as the "queens knight" or "king's rook".

This set is crafted from high-quality ebony and boxwood, making it both an impressive addition to any collection and a wise investment for future generations. The king's height and sturdy base are perfectly paired with a 23.6 inch black and light maple chess board from Rechapados Ferrer S.A., renowned chess artisans from Spain. The board's sleek, contemporary design is achieved through the use of high-grade veneers and modern fabrication techniques, resulting in striking contrasts and precise details. The black and light maple checkered squares are undeniably alluring, complemented by a beautifully veneered grey wood base. This timeless chess set is truly a work of art.
