Description

Marvels of grace, balance, beauty and simplicity... This is THE classic set that established a worldwide standard used since the mid-19th C. Study the King's crown and Queen's coronet, details of bishops and rooks, knights modeled after marble stallion heads from the Parthenon, on down to the diminutive pawn. Admire the simple, yet elegant contours. Well-weighted. Shaped to hold, to touch, to admire... To be gazed at in unwavering and total concentration.

Our production is a detailed replica of an original Bone set manufactured around 1850 by Jaques and purchased at a 1990s London auction. English chess master, Howard Saunton, promoted this set at the first international chess tournament in 1851. It's clearly distinguishable pieces soon became the competition standard known as the 'Staunton' set.
