This incredible chess set from House of Staunton is easily one of our most elegant sets available. Pieces are handcrafted from genuine boxwood and ebony, with billiard cloth base pads, weighted with brass discs under bases to prevent hairline cracks. King height is 4.4". The board is handcrafted in Spain from striped ebony and bird's eye maple, dimensions are 23.75" x 23.75" with 2.5" squares.
Each set comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity from the House of Staunton and an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed.
In the summer of 2018, the World Chess Hall of Fame premiered an exhibition featuring many sets from the House of Staunton, called The Staunton Standard.
