Modern colours meet a classic Staunton design.
Impressive 3.75 inch king. Weighted for perfect balance.

A striking set of chessmen in a traditional Staunton broadbase pattern, these unique pieces are beautifully carved, stained and then polished by our master craftsmen.All the pieces are perfectly weighted and with the added detail to their collars and smooth shanks, they are a pleasure to handle. The imposing King stands tall and proud at 3.75 inches including his ornamental finial with the substantial knight maintaining a focused stare in true original Staunton style.As these pieces have broader bases than normal, a 21.7 inch would be most suited to accommodate them. We have matched them with a stunning black and maple board from Spain to give you the Red And Black Broadbase Chess Set.
