Hand-crafted with precision and care, 1849 brings vintage experience to the masses. The King proudly stands at 4.5" tall with a base diameter of 1.8". The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. Pieces have unique rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chessmen for smooth movement on the chess board. The Knights are well-reproduced and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.

The dark chess pieces are made of ebony wood. It would be difficult to find a more sumptuous wood than ebony wood for the dark side chess pieces. The texture of the ebony wood is fine and a true pleasure to hold. The deep luster and total blackness of the ebony wood are exceptional. The opposing pieces are made of antiqued boxwood. Boxwood is one of the fairly easy woods to work with and shows off aesthetic detail. The knights are well-crafted and exhibit the sky-high level of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.

Craftsmanship: Each piece is meticulously hand carved from the finest grade wood. The set is entirely handmade in India and weighted for prodigious hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. All chess pieces have a wide base which adds another interesting dimension to the set. Each chessmen is carefully handcrafted in India with dainty details. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are comparable to the original chess sets that are sold for $4000+ by other retailers.

The Birth of the Staunton Pattern Design: Named after Howard Staunton, the unofficial world champion of the time, the first Staunton set was produced by John Jaques of London which was beautiful in its functionality yet easy to be produced in large scale. The pieces were rugged with heavy stable bases which did not tumble easily. The rooks were turned to look solid castles, the pawns were minimalist but refined, the bishops had simple mitres, the tall king was distinguished with a cross finial and the queen with coronet. This functional design of chess pieces was taken very well by chess enthusiasts and it became very popular quickly. Later it became the only design accepted by FIDE for tournaments. There are many variations in the design available now but most of these have been derived from the original Staunton design. Know More->

New king side stamping process: The new king side stamping is accomplished through an innovative process for a uniform stamping. King side rook and knight have been stamped in both red & white side. A crown emblem on the foreheads of knights and on top of the turrets of the rooks which stands on the side of the kings on both sides. The main concept behind the king side stamping is to identify and differentiate their positioning on to the king's side of the board. Another reason for using king stamping is that the rooks and knights are often designated by being the "queen's knight", the "king's rook", etc. The kingside bishop does not need any such identification as they move in their respective colors only. 

A piece of art: Handcrafted in India, by the passionate designers of chessbazaar whose wish is to present you with the most wonderful reproduction of 1849 Staunton design we have ever made. We have also stamped our brand name on the base of kings. Our team of expert carvers put their hearts into the smallest little details of this chess set and have closely worked to bring out this revised reproduction as perfect as it can be. The result of this hard work of these master craftsmen is a truly wonderful design and a masterpiece which any connoisseur will admire.

New Antique Finish Process: The new antique finish is accomplished through an innovative four-step process of color and rotational 3-D polishing for a uniform finish. This new antique finish even prevents pieces from cracks and splits.

Felts: Thick green felt precisely envelops the base of each chessmen.

Uniformity of pieces: The shapes of turned pieces are guided by metal profiles and so all turned pieces are identical, especially the pawns. You can expect some variation where hand carving or cutting comes i.e. knights.

Weights: The set is heavily weighted with lead and so they are a pleasure to hold and will last for years if maintained properly in a dry and clean place.

Felts: Thick green felt precisely envelops the base of each chessmen.

Excellent set. This is a much better reproduction of the 1849 Jaques than their first attempt, where the knights were too large. I'm glad I waited for it. (Posted on 10/30/2018)
