A striking chess set featuring red and black 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 board would be most suited to accommodate them. We have matched them in this set with a stunning black and maple board from Spain. It is as though the board and pieces were made for each other.
Red and Black Broadbase Chessmen also available without the board.
