    "With a strong hint of the Art Deco look that is reminiscent of the 1920s, they completely capture the essence of a serious set of chessmen while at the same time maintaining a look of pure elegance. "

     

    To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Empire Series Luxury Chess set. Designed by the Maestro himself, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr., it is a full Club-sized Chess set that features a 4.4" King with a 2.0" diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with gold embossed English Leather base pads under the Kings, luxurious billiard cloth base pads on the other Chess pieces and a beautiful finish. The design of the Empire Series Luxury Chess set features a strong hint of the Art Deco look that is reminiscent of the 1920s. The chess set has been designed to take abuse while retaining an elegance and aesthetic beauty that has not previously been seen in a playing chess set at any price. There are no fragile details subject to breakage, such as collars, ball finials and Queen's crenellations normally found in conventional Staunton chessmen. The Empire Series Luxury Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in an heirloom quality Chess set that is a true work of art, one that is as beautiful as it is functional.

     

    No Chessmen before have been able to so completely capture the essence of a serious set of chessmen while at the same time maintaining a look of such elegance, simplicity, durability and clarity. The pieces seem to ?melt? and conform to your hand. They just feel right. While the design of the Chessmen is elegant, don't let that fool you - This set is fully functional and ideal for all types of Chess play.

     

    As with all of our Chessmen, the Empire Series Luxury Chess set exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a House of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!

     

    The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 36 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago. 

     

    The Chess Set comes with a personalized Certificate of Authenticity and an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesivebacking that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box.
