    Analogous with intelligence and sophistication, chess has obsessed the minds of royalty, military, the elite and the mundane for the past 1500 years. The silhouettes are timelessly recognizable - with centuries of romance and conquest soberly contained within the six iconic shapes. Wars - and sanity - have been won and lost on the black and white board.

     

    The bishop has the most dramatic history... across cultures, the groove has led the piece to be know as the elephant (depicting the tusks), a messenger, an archer, a jester ("le fou" with his silly multi tipped cap) and then the bishop (the canonical mitre).

    Multiple chain length options to choose from.

     

    The handmade original Bishop stands a little over one inch tall. Cast in the highest quality sterling silver here in our New York City studio. He hangs from an oxidized sterling silver square chain which has been repolished for a gunmetal sheen. Three dimensional.

    • The Reykjavik II Series Tournament Chess Set and Tiroir Combination
      Enjoy Savings of 18% Off MSRP When Purchased as a Combination
      The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Reykjavik II Series Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75" King with a 1.75"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 luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish. The design of the Reykjavik II Chess set is an exact reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he won the 1972 World Chess Championship against the reigning World Champion Grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features reinforced Pawn collars and oversized Rook ramparts for unmatched durability. The Reykjavik II Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.
