1890 Heirloom Staunton Chess Set in Antiqued Ebony & Boxwood – 4.4″ King


Our 1890 Heirloom Staunton Chess Set resembles closely produced in 1890 by Jaques of London. The 1890 is a club size set with a 4.4″ tall king with pieces that are robust and heavy. The knight is attractive with simple features that give this set a special charm. Pieces have a soft and silky lacquer finish that gives them the look and feel of an old, antique chess set (in new condition). The boxwood is stained to a dark amber color to replicate the patina of boxwood a hundred years old. The king, queen, and bishops have noticeable shorter columns that most sets with a slight curve from the base to the collar. The king has a tall crown with a traditional formed cross. The queen is relatively short with a narrow crown that is thick to prevent breaking and has 10 softened points that are perfectly spaced. The bishop has a large miter with a unique slot that angles inward to the center creating an inner point. The rooks are broad and heavy standing even with the knight’s nose. Both collectors and chess set connoisseurs will find this heirloom quality set a favorite in their collection and will enhance the experience of the game, win or lose.
