Our 4.5" full brass metal chess pieces are a reproduction of 1849 series Original Staunton Chess Pieces designed by famous wood turner John Jacques. This design is considered as the Gold Standard for collectors and chess players worldwide. No collection can be considered complete without a set of this design.
Each piece of this design follows a defined grammar. The sturdy rooks are designed to look like solid castles with impregnable walls, pawns are made to look minimalist with slim collars, bishops with simple mitres, the tall elegant king readily distinguished by its cross and the queen has a distinctive coronet.
Showstoppers of the set, Knights are inspired by the horses in the Elgin Marbles from the Athenian Parthenon.
