Our British Staunton chess set originates from the old British Chess Company design from years past. This set has a sleek profile with a traditional straight base, a small and stylish knight, and unusually tall rook and pawn. The ebonized boxwood is polished to a smooth, lustrous finish that nearly looks like real ebony. The golden rosewood has warm gold and brown colors that creates a softer contrast with the ebonized pieces than does the most often used boxwood. The king, queen, and bishop columns have a graceful curve creating a beautiful profile. The king has a traditional formee cross. The queen’s crown has 9 sharp points that are perfectly spaced and left thick enough to prevent breaking. The bishop miter is tall, slender, and symetrical in shape. The rook stands even with the top of the knight’s head and has a straight taper from the parapet to the base. The parapets are tall and have 6 deep crenels. The pawns are tall with large heads that make them easy to grab when playing. An all round great set for play and one you will want to leave out.
