Special thanks to "Stephen Kong A.K.A. Chess Praxis" for his exceptional efforts in making this dream chess set a reality.

chessbazaar® is proud to introduce "B & Co 1860s Antique Chess Set". This chess set features chessmen that are crafted with a combination of ebony wood and antiqued boxwood. The King proudly stands at 3.93 inches and its base is a robust 1.8 inches. 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. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade genuine ebony wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. 

The opposing pieces are made of boxwood which is traditionally used for white side. It is one of the fairly easy woods to work with and shows off aesthetic detail. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. 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.

Craftsmanship: This fascinating chess set was produced by B & Company in the 1860s. The lathe work on each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the marvellous miter cut on the bishops. All chess pieces have a wide base which adds another interesting dimension to the set. The carving and turning the quality of the knight are quite spectacular. Knights have a divergent style of carving on each side making even more captivating pieces from different angle views. The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding that allows the set to truly stand out. 

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.
 
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.
 
Design & Quality: The pieces are handcrafted with wide bases which don't tumble easily. The rooks are turned to look solid castles, the pawns are minimalist just like the Jacques style, the bishops have a unique cut, the king is distinguished without a cross finial. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are unmatched and that is what made them favorite of the masses. The result of this hard work of these master craftsmen is a truly wonderful design and a masterpiece which any connoisseur will admire. This reproduction exemplifies a perfect combination of class and history

Fabulous Vintage Reproduction, Lovely pieces Review by Mickey Ladz

First of all, kudos to Gurpreet, Vik and the ChessBazaar team for offering another vintage classic reproduction. My wallet can not keep up with all the fantastic historic reproduction they have offered in the past few years. This B & Co set is absolutely GORGEOUS in every way. The elegant thin stem Kings, Queens and Bishops are a sight to behold. The King's ball finial is refreshing different than the customary cross finials found on most Staunton style sets. The unique Queens crown is so lovely. The Bishop's really impresses with its atypical miter. The chunky Rooks add to the beauty of this fascinating set along with the fancy collar Pawns. Lastly, the exquisite hand carved Knights put the finishing touches to this amazing set. I almost forgot, but the antique boxwood finish is SUPERB!! Coupled with the ebony pieces this set makes a stunning board presence. It was a tough decision, but I chose the lacquered version. The set is also offered in a buff version. All in all, I must have set for the discerning collector and player alike. You will not be disappointed with this acquisition. (Posted on 1/28/2019)
Timeless Treasure of a Master piece Review by Chess Praxis

Kudos to Chess Bazaar once again for the resurrection of the rare British & Co vintage timeless chess set. The actual copy from my set was only 3“tall King. Now we have it in 4" King in antique boxwood and ebony-finished. A must for all serious collectors to own this historical set. Each and every single piece from the pawn to the King are carefully reviewed and commented with true to 100% perfection. (Posted on 1/19/2019)
