1865 Staunton 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 inch, 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
