1865 Staunton Ebony Chessmen




A superb reproduction of a John Jaques of London chess set circa 1925. Beautifully hand carved and turned. A  tournament chess set which is perfect for display or a blitz chess game!. Weighted and balanced pieces, with sufficient heft.

The original Jaques set featured a king height of 3.5 inches, we have increased this to 4.00 inch whilst maintaining the design specifics.  The meticulous hand finishing to these mid-range chess pieces is something you would expect to see in a much higher priced set with a luxury tag!  As with all the Official Staunton Collection, expect nothing but quality at an affordable price point!  The Kings have the Official Staunton engraved hallmark

4 Inch King
Weighted and Felted Pieces
Base Diameter of King 1.75 Inch 

Recommended board square size: Minimum 55mm
