We are pleased to announce the Old Collector's Club Staunton Series heirloom quality chessmen exquisitely made from bud rosewood and natural boxwood(Also available in ebony wood). The King proudly stands at 4.4 inches and its base is robust 1.9 inches. This is a classic design featuring the magnificently robust and remarkable knight. 

Dark chess pieces are exquisitely crafted in bud rosewood. Because of its rarity, bud rosewood chess pieces are the primary choice of many chess enthusiasts. Bud rosewood is an alluring wood and probably the most admired wood for luxury chess sets. 

The opposing pieces are made of boxwood which is traditionally used for the 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 heavily weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. All Pieces are uniquely designed and have thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chessmen for smooth movement on the chess board. The knights are well-crafted and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.

Craftsmanship: The lathe work on each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the elegant curves. There are 6 cuts in the turrets of the rook. The carving and the design of the knight are quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, teeth and, craftsmanship around the mane. The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding, each chessmen is carefully handcrafted in India. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade bud rosewood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $900+ by other retailers.

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.

All chess pieces have an elegant visual appeal that blends well for permanent display on a cocktail table or any contemporary home. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here

Package Includes : 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). chess board NOT included in this sale.

Stunning pieces Review by Cristian

These pieces are a must, tall, excellently carved, and this wood "Red Bug Rosewood" is amazing to hold and watch.

I appreciate the Bishop having a wide mitre, making it a chess set of quality.

The felt base is kind of thin, I guess it's because it doesn't cover the entire surface but the center (as the base has a bezel border) and it would be worse if it were really thick making the piece unstable.

These are really heavy (I haven't yet compared them to other sets with a scale) and capable of standing still in any situation.

So, excellent wood, design (so similar to the original Staunton with some differences), weight and carving. (Posted on 3/21/2018)
