"From the Maestro Frank A.Camaratta, Jr., a stunning and original masterpiece that captures in both design and proportion the relative value of the individual Chessmen, a unique feature found in no other set of Staunton Chessmen."
To pamper you, The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Renegade Series Chess set. This Chess set features a 3.875" King with a 1.65" diameter base and is heavily weighted. 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.The design of the Renegade Series Chess set is a stunning and original masterpiece by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr. The defining feature of this set is how the Maestro was able to capture the relative value of the individual Chessmen into its design and proportions. This unique, robust design has a very uniform look with broad bases and heavy pedestals. Notice the old-world feel and design of the Bishop and the superb carving of the Knight. Another masterpiece from the Maestro!
As with all of our Chessmen, the Renegade Series 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 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.
With the introduction of the original Staunton Chessmen, which were first registered by Nathaniel Cook and produced by Jaques of London in 1849, it become an accepted standard that the Knight should be taller than the Rook.
With the exception of the Rook, the height of the individual Chessmen is an accurate reflection of its relative value. The King, the most valuable piece on the chess board is also the tallest. Likewise the Queen, the second most valuable piece on the Chess board is the second tallest. The minor pieces, the Bishop and the Knight, are widely considered to be roughly equal in value and are approximately the same height, with theBishop being slightly taller in deference to its superior mobility. The Pawn, the least valuable is also the shortest. The House of Staunton asks 'Why is the Rook, one of the major pieces and one of the most valuable(5) significantly shorter than both the less valuable Bishop and Knight?'
With the introduction of the Renegade Luxury Series Chessmen, we have thrown out standard convention and have returned the Rook to its rightful stature, towering over both the Bishop and Knight.
