Deluxe Old Club Staunton Chess Set in Golden Rosewood & Boxwood with Walnut Chess Case – 3.25″ King


Our Deluxe Old Club Staunton chess set originates from the one offered by Jaques of London years ago. A traditional Staunton design in every respect, this chess set has become a standard that nearly every chess set manufacturer attempts to emulate. The Deluxe Old Club is often displayed on the front cover of chess books and has been used for countless plastic chess set models because of its popularity with players. This is a tournament size chess set with a 3.25″ tall king that features a large formee cross. Pieces have a straight cut base and are heavily weighted for stability on the chess board. The king, queen, and bishops have columns with proportionate width and a graceful curve. The queen’s crown is turned to the ideal thickness and has 9 sharp points that are perfectly spaced. The bishop has an unusually large round miter that is unique to this set. The knights are stout and heavy with simple detail that looks perfect for this set. The rooks are average height but have a very tall parapet with deep cut crenels. The pawns have tapered collars and large, oversize heads. The chess case is made from solid walnut and other wood veneers and has two large drawers, one on each players side. The drawers will hold chess sets with a king base up to 1.4″ diameter.
