Edinburgh Upright Chess Set in Red Sandalwood & Boxwood – 3.75″ King


This is our antique reproduction chess set of the Edinburgh Upright that was produced in the mid 19th century. There were numerous variations of this general chess set design produced over the years with other names such as the Northern Upright. We believe this is the most elegant and attractive of the various designs. The Edinburgh Upright prominently features large, straight colums on all of its pieces, thus the likely origin of its name. This beautiful recreation is produced in boxwood with a black and ivory high gloss finish, though the original sets were most often made in ivory, which of course is no longer an option. These pieces are heavily weighted and have an amazing stability on the chess board making them wonderful to play with. The king has an urn shaped head while the queen has a perfectly round, knobbed shaped head, both with small pointed finials. The knights are carved with intricate detail and the bishop has a large, gapping miter that is uniqely attractive. This chess set makes a beautiful display and will impress any chess connoisseur with its unique and beautiful design and quality of the craftsmanship.
